About the Play
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.
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.
