2nd Story performs 3-4 events per month all over the fine city of Chicago (and beyond!) Though the format of the performance will vary from venue to venue (sometimes we do three stories, sometimes four, or five, or two; sometimes we have live music, sometimes we work with a DJ or sound designer), the timbre is always the same. Since our goal is to get people talking and telling their own stories, there’s always space and time for our audience to connect to each other.

Our Next Performance

Who's That in the Mirror?: Stories of Growth and Reflection

Doors at 7pm; stories at 7:30pm.

Often we think we know ourselves, and then life comes along and hands us an experience that turns us on our heads. How do we discover what we want out of life? How do we grow into who we were meant to be? From a young boy’s reckoning with his strict father to a young woman’s brush with consent, from love to loss to laughter, these four stories explore what happens when someone on the outside changes who we are on the inside.

Curated by Jessica Young. Directed by Dorothy Milne. Sound Design by Matthew Chapman.
