Pursuing Justice – sex workers take their rapist to court

Pursuing Justice – sex workers take their rapist to court

Pursuing Justice – sex workers take their rapist to court

is a tense courtroom drama about a landmark rape trial, taken from the original court transcript. In 1995 two sex workers courageously put their rapist on trial after the authorities refused to prosecute. They were supported by the English Collective of Prostitutes and Women Against Rape, who battled for three years to bring the case to court with lawyers who didn’t charge. It was the first private prosecution for rape in England and Wales, and it made legal history. 

 

The 90-minute play brings to life the women’s private pain, families, hardships, and their determination to get justice despite all the prejudices. With rape daily in the news, it is highly topical and deeply moving.

 

Followed by Q&A with one of the victims, the campaigners who helped to bring the rapist to court, and Lesley Delmenico, author and director.
