Upcoming Events

ShowcaseNovember 12–14, 2018
Chicago Dramatists Theatre | Chicago, IL

Firefighters, paramedics, law enforcement officers, and military personnel can encounter traumatic events daily in the line of duty. These experiences are often met with inadequate mental health support and intensified pressure to simply “power through” by any means necessary. Join us at Chicago Dramatists on November 12–14 for a showcase of new stories from this sphere, followed by facilitated dialogue.

The Criminal Justice Project (working title) | April 2–May 5, 2019
Location TBD | Chicago, IL

This world premiere production is an exploration into the mental health impact of the criminal justice system on the lives of those it touches. We follow the story of Dana Holland—wrongfully incarcerated for over a decade before being exonerated—told in conjunction with complex and powerful insights from the people he encountered along the way.
