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

This Is Where We Are: Stories Of Self And Acceptance

Doors at 7:00pm; stories at 7:30pm.

What happens when someone isn’t who we thought they were? What happens when that someone is us? A celebrity crush crashes an anniversary celebration; a woman wrestles the ghost haunting her new life; a child rules her new world with both velvet glove and iron fist; a mother struggles to give her daughter the world she never had. This month, our tellers search for answers as they search for themselves—whether they like what they find or not.

For the second year in a row, 2nd Story will be at The Teal Room at Pub 626 in Rogers Park for one full weekend every month. Tickets available online or at the door. See you there!

Curated by Andrew Reilly. Directed by Dorothy Milne. Sound Design by Nick Kawahara.

$20 online or at the door.
