A play on human trafficking, It Felt Empty When the Heart Went at First but it is Alright Now continues to meet audiences in its 7th award-winning season.

“In fact, it’s funny: I know how much I’m worth. How many people can say that? I’m worth three thousand dollars. Because that’s what Mustafa paid for me. Two and a half iPhones.”

When Dijana got off the Odessa ferry that landed at the Karaköy Pier that morning, she was dreaming of a better life and a happy future. But what was in store for her was far from her dreams. Dijana is one of the hundreds of women captured by human traffickers, whose passports taken and who are locked up in houses, forced into prostitution.

She portrays herself with a realism and irony that is at times hard to bear.

Talimhane Tiyatrosu presents an adaptation of the play to Turkey, which unfortunately is an important hub for human trafficking.
