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

In Between Words: Stories of What Happens in the Silence

Doors at 7pm; show at 8pm.

Every day we’re presented with moments where we choose to speak up or stay silent. But what happens during those moments of indecision? Or what happens when we choose to stay silent? And how do we attempt to find our voices? We explore this theme through stories of a teenage boy navigating his group of friends, a couple navigating a difficult subject, a woman debating her feelings for a friend, and a mixed-race woman losing her voice when she needs it the most. We hope you’ll join us!

Curated by Molly Each. Directed by Liz Rice.
