Nelson Algren famously wrote, “Loving Chicago is like loving a woman with a broken nose.” Theatre Seven of Chicago presents The Chicago Project, a collage of interviews, autobiographical stories and personal experiences performed by a versatile eight-actor ensemble. From bike crashes, to kidney stones, from CTA mishaps, to the Cubs worst loss, the evening explores the challenges and joys of living in the City of Big Shoulders.

Last spring Margot Bordelon and Cassy Sanders put out a call for Chicago stories and plays by Chicago authors. Eight pieces were selected to be woven together and presented in a staged reading for three performances only. We invite you to join us and hope that you will stay afterward to discuss what resonated with you, where you think the project should go next, and even share your own Chicago stories. Featuring performances by: Marjorie Armstrong, Paige Collins, Sarah Gitenstein, Megan Hill, Alexander Lane, Travis Williams, Joe Zarrow, and George Zerante. Stage Managed by Dan McArdle
