A Play to Benefit United Against Human Trafficking
By: Mary Bonnett

Directed by: Jennifer Decker
Sex trafficking seems like someone else’s problem, until an upper middle-class family in a prominent Houston area suburb finds itself ensnared. This unflinching drama explores our values raising boys to men, instant sexual gratification and its impact on women, the family and those purchased. Select nights will be hosted by anti-trafficking advocacy groups. See below for more information.

Originally produced in 2014 for Her Story Theater, Bonnett’s play was based on hundreds of interviews with people involved in sex trafficking in the Chicagoland area. For the Mildred’s Umbrella production, the playwright has updated the script to set the action in The Woodlands, Texas. The Johns is produced in collaboration with The National Council of Jewish Women, Greater Houston Section and United Against Human Trafficking.
