Written by Her Story Theater Founder and Producing Artistic Director Mary Bonnett, and directed by John Mossman, Co-Founder of The Artistic Home, MONGER follows a Chicago criminal defense attorney with a secret life who finds his world shattered as he deals with his sensitive 16-year-old son’s legal crisis on the day he takes a deposition from the mother of a murdered teenager. The play uncovers a nationwide, online, anonymous brotherhood of men. Though the characters and plot are fictional, they are inspired by real-life Chicago events and include actual posts from online conversations among men. This world premiere thrusts the audience on a tumultuous ride from the opening line to its dramatic conclusion.
Her Story Theatre is a theater for social change... "Our 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."
Hakafa’s Justice for Women group is dedicated to learning about the challenges, inequities, and oppression experienced by women and girls locally and around the world, and in taking action and advocating for their empowerment. Both women and men are encouraged to participate in Hakafa’s Justice for Women programs.
In 2015, Hakafa became the first official congregational member of the Jewish Coalition Against Sex Trafficking (JCAST) Chicago.
