"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



When high school senior Natalie gets an afterschool job taking care of Robbie, a 37-year old with Asperger�s, roles get confused: from parent-child to counselor-student to supervisor-worker. Ensemble member Stephen Cone directs the world premiere of Philip Dawkins' harshly funny look at the fine line between love and abuse.
