Mildred's Umbrella Theater Company presents The Johns
The Johns is an eye-opening look at human trafficking and its continuing prevalence in today’s society. 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.
Mary Bonnett’s play was based on hundreds of interviews with people involved in sex trafficking in the Chicagoland area. For the Houston production, the playwright updated the script to set the action in The Woodlands, Texas.
