HER STORY THEATER's mission, through theater and the written word, is to shine bright lights in dark places on women and children in need of social justice and community support.
Her Story Theater's SHADOW TOWN II: THE JOHNS, written and directed by Mary Bonnett, is a 90 minute original stage play, based on Mary's dozens of interviews of people involved with sex trafficking in Chicago. Meet Baby Girl and The Family.
SHADOW TOWN II: THE JOHNS picks up where SHADOW TOWN left off...with the 'Demand' side of sex trafficking, the men who buy young girls for sex. The play explores how it impacts the men's lives, their families , the girls they use and the community.
SHADOW TOWN II: THE JOHNS is imaginative, amusing, powerful and must-see production. It is woven with song, a little dance, untraditional in style yet moving in presentation and important piece of theater.
Cast Members: Sarah Mellas, Brooke Bartlett, Doug Schuetz, Mary McClenahan, Lindsey Scalise, Caleb Probts, Adam Marcantoni
DID YOU KNOW...97% of the buyers are men * the average age of a sex trafficked child is 11 years old. * Sex trafficking is a $32 billion dollar illegal business, the second largest in the world. * Once a child is trafficked, their survival rate is 7 years. * Did you know there are 16,000 children in our city, suburbs and collar counties sexually exploited in the commercial sex trade * Sex trafficked children live in a nightmare, 365 days a year. * Did you know, together we help end it.
Proceeds benefit The DREAMCATCHER FOUNDATION, a street rescue and recovery organization for Chicago sex trafficked girls and women. The DREAMCATCHER FOUNDATION is developing a crisis drop-in center in the Chicagoland area for sex trafficked girls and prostituted women.
