"Nobody in Chicago does adolescent angst quite like the Side Project... the intimate Rogers Park company treats young-adult characters as if they’re no less complicated than those in Ibsen."

Time Out Chicago

Production Detail

2015-2016

"...witty... fascinating... insightful... ingenious... an unsettling and irresistible act of storytelling that... illustrates the power of a cracking good yarn." - Zac Thompson, Chicago Reader

Originally presented by Found Objects Theatre Group at the 25th Annual Rhinoceros Festival, in connection with Curious Theatre Branch.
