Andy Bayiates is a Chicago-based playwright and storyteller, writing and reading stories on stage for the likes of 2nd Story, Essay Fiesta, Paper Machete and The Encyclopedia Show. He wrote and performed in Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind (1999-2005) and 44 Plays For 44 Presidents, for which he was founding father and co-writer. 44 Plays was mounted by Dad's Garage, where former President Jimmy Carter attended a performance, and has been published by Playscripts, Inc. before being produced at The Actor's Theatre of Louisville. Mr. Bayiates' A 60-Minute History Of Humankind (2003) appeared on the NBC reality TV show Starting Over, and was the jumping-offing point for A History Of Human Stupidity, which premiered in Berkeley, California in 2010 and was previewed in American Theatre Magazine.

About the Neighborhood Series

There is nothing like listening to a good story with great company and sharing drinks and food around the table. For over 17 years, 2nd Story has been offering up just that at venues throughout Chicago and beyond. Instead of finding one single new home for ourselves, we are always on the lookout to sow seeds in a variety of neighborhoods across the city. In pursuit of our vision of fostering community through the experience of sharing stories, we will host shows, workshops, and other events in each neighborhood. If you have a favorite neighborhood venue that you think would be great for 2nd Story, we'd love to hear about it. Drop us a line at info@2ndStory.com!

What to expect, and a little about The Teal Room at Pub 626

The Teal Room at Pub 626 is the backroom of the venue located at 1406 W. Morse Avenue.  There is a private entrance along Glenwood avenue, just north of Morse Avenue.  There is full bar and food service in the backroom, you can check out the menu here.  There is a single-user, gender-neutral bathroom in the event space, as well as multi-user, gender specific bathrooms just outside of the space.  The venue is located just off of the Morse stop on the Redline, and there is also street parking available in the neighborhood (much of it is metered, so take a look around!)
