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.

What Lies Beneath: Stories of Finding Out Why

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

What happens when you dare to venture past the tip of the iceberg? Often times we’re afraid to find out—to begin to explore what’s under the surface. And not just what’s there, but why it is the way it is. But how do we go about finding out why? Do we dive right in, or dip a toe first? From a graduate student risking academic repercussions by joining an anti-war movement to a young boy coming to terms with his best friend’s dark side, join us at Peckish Pig for an evening of discovering what lies beneath.

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 Julie Ganey. Directed by Reshmi Hazra. Sound Design by Billy Eline.

$20 online or cash at the door. We always have Pay-What-You-Feel tickets available at the door! (Arrive early for your best chance at a seat.)
