But after the plays stopped and the building got vacated by the artists, the buildings name was changed to The Pila House, a place where prostitutes put up their wares. There were women who were forced to sell their bodies for money, others were doing it to make ends meet, while others were forced to do it as they didn’t have any other place to go to. Faced by many challenges and sacrifices the women of Pila House carried forward their business and lured wealthy men to buy their bodies.
