Following the 2013 highly-acclaimed play Shadow Town based on the sex trafficking of girls in the Chicagoland area, Bonnett creates the second half of the story—the ‘demand’ side and its impact on the purchasers, their families and the sex-trafficked girls. This 90-minute original stage play is based on Bonnett’s interviews with dozens of people involved with sex trafficking in Chicago, including men who purchase sex. The six-person ensemble- including CAASE's very own Educator, Caleb Probst -creates a journey into the dual nature of our lives— lives that collide and clash in unexpected ways, leaving a lasting imprint on what we perceive as truth, accept as normal and reject as problematic.
Each performance will include a post-show discussion and audience Q&A with experts in sex trafficking.
