We would like to thank EVERYONE who joined us for monologue readings, workshops, and performances—or a combination of all three— during DocFest2018! We are thrilled you were a part of this year’s event.

Story Showcase: First Responders
Join us at Chicago Dramatists on November 12–14 for a showcase of new stories — Story Showcase: First Responders, a timely exploration of the mental health experiences of firefighters, paramedics, and law enforcement officers.
Many uniformed first responders encounter traumatic events in the line of duty. And they often face unique challenges to receiving mental health support, including cultural pressure to continue their day-to-day routine by any means necessary, despite difficulties.
