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.

Seeing Things in a New Light: Stories of Discovery and Epiphany

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

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

Life throws you a curveball, and your world becomes unmoored. Sometimes, that change comes with the end of a relationship or a radical career shift. But no matter what, these discoveries and epiphanies have the power to transform our worlds, or at least our perceptions. From a young woman who must endure one of her biggest fears to reach her saving grace to a little girl on a quest with her mother for a new set of dishes, join us for an evening of stories that are sure to help you see things in a new light.

Curated by Aimy Tien and Vince Pagan. Directed by Julian Stroop. Sound Design by Jeffery Levin.
