Performances

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.

A Land of Plenty: Stories of Scarcity & Abundance

Doors at 6pm; stories at 8pm.


Doors at 6pm; stories at 8pm.

Thanksgiving is a time of feasting, of food and family and gratitude. On this designated day of appreciation, we become acutely aware of just how much we have to be thankful for. And yet, that question of how much we have differs greatly depending on where we’re coming from. As the wealth gap continues to grow in this country, the divides between those who have plenty, those who have enough, and those who do not are sharper than they’ve been for generations. How do we reconcile living in a country whose excesses are accessible to increasingly fewer people? How do we find plenty in the midst of scarcity? And how do we give thanks for what we have while also striving for more?

Curated by Deb Lewis. Directed by Reshmi Hazra. Sound Design by Mike Przygoda.

$19.62 (fees included). Some Pay-What-You-Feel tickets are available at the door.
