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

Surviving the Next Step: Stories of Finding Our Own Paths

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

It’s the feeling of trying to navigate through the ocean, being met with immense resistance in every direction. We’ve all been there. Whether you’re trying to cope with the death of yet another grandmother, or being shamed by your doctor for your life decisions – we are each presented with a choice. We can live our lives how everyone else always has, following their well-tread footsteps, or we can carve out new paths to unknown destinations. Join us this June as we celebrate moments of staying true to our own course and finding peace at the other end.

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 Karla Estela Rivera and Reshmi Hazra Rustebakke. Directed by Liz Rice. Sound Design by Nick Kawahara.

$20 online or at the door.

In addition to our regular tickets ($20), we offer Pay What You Feetickets at the door (you can pay $1 or $1,000, whatever feels right to you). Same show, same seating, same experience.
