      MONGERS

      HER STORY THEATER enters it's fourth and final production of the Chicago Sex Trafficking Cycle. MONGERS, a play about men who play online with the lives of young girls. It's their "hobby". Set to music, Mongers explores the habits, lives and attitudes of those anonymous online buyers whose sexual habits and desires cost an arm and a leg..maybe two. As always, thanks to THE OPPENHEIMER FAMILY FOUNDATION  for making it possible. With their continued belief and support in HER STORY THEATER'S work, all four sex trafficking cycle plays will have been produced and reached thousands of audience members.
