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. Click on the left menu bar to see all our upcoming shows. Our very next performance is listed below.

Our Next Performance

Strangers No More: Stories of Connection - Elm Park Edition

Join us in the park starting at 2pm; the show starts at 3pm.

We usually think of strangers as people we have just met, but sometimes a stranger is someone we will NEVER meet, or someone we are hoping to meet, or even someone we have known for a lifetime but are seeing in a completely new light. In all these situations, these people can impact us in surprisingly profound ways. From the story of a woman coping with her mother’s dementia to the story of a man trying to get his wife to the hospital in the midst of a snowstorm, join us for stories about making the connections that transform us.

In cooperation with City of Chicago’s Night Out in the Parks, this event is outdoors in Elm Park. Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, and picnic baskets for this afternoon event!

Curated by CP Chang.

This event is free!
