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

Plot Twist! Stories of Changing Paths

Doors at 7pm; stories at 7:30pm

It’s what we all hope for in a good story: an unexpected plot twist, a game changer. These moments pop up in our lives all the time, whether we’re ready for them or not – especially when it comes to love. How do we react to these curveballs? Do we ignore them, fight them, or embrace the opportunity to go in a new direction? Join us at Peckish Pig this month to hear about four stories of path-changing plot twists that lead to finding all types of love – romantic, parent-child, extended family – in unexpected places.

In addition to our regular tickets ($20), we offer Pay What You Feel tickets at the door (you can pay $1 or $1,000, whatever feels right to you). Same show, same seating, same experience. Read more about this initiative to eliminate real and perceived financial barriers here.

Curated by Jess Kadish. Directed by Julian Stroop. Sound Design by Nick Kawahara.

$20 online or cash at the door. Some Pay-What-You-Feel tickets are available at each show!
