Behind The Scenes: REDISCOVERING KATE CAREW

Brothel/Opium Den

 

According to H. H. Kane, a doctor who spent years studying opium use in New York in the 1870s and 1880s, the most popular opium dens (or “opium joints” as they were known in the parlance of the day) were located on Mott and Pell streets in what is still Manhattan’s Chinatown.

Kane remarked that New York’s opium dens were one place “where all nationalities seem indiscriminately mixed”.

Behind The Scenes: Rediscovering Kate Carew
Interview: Dr. Katie Johnson (Historian/Author.)
Sisters in Sin: Brothel Drama in America, 1900-1920

The prostitute, and her sister in sin – the so-called ‘fallen’ woman – were veritable obsessions of American Progressive Era culture. Their cumulative presence, in scores of controversial theatrical productions, demonstrates the repeated obsession with the prostitute figure. Sisters in Sin recovers a slice of theatre history in demonstrating that the prostitute was central to American realist theatre. The brothel drama’s stunning success reveals much about early twentieth-century American anxieties about sexuality, contagion, eugenics, women’s rights and urbanization.

WHITE SLAVERY

A scene from the film, ‘Rediscovering Kate Carew’…Involving the detention of women accused of white slavery during the Gilded Age. Kate Carew visits white slaves.

Actresses, Kathryn Quigley and Lauren Dougherty.

 

In English-speaking countries in the 19th and early 20th centuries, the phrase “white slavery” was used to refer to sexual enslavement of white women. The phrase gradually came to be used as a euphemism for prostitution. The phrase was especially common in the context of the exploitation of minors, with the implication that children and young women in such circumstances were not free to decide their own fates.

Actresses, Kathryn Quigley, Amber Matthews and Actor: James McGonigle.
