1001 Afternoons in Chicago

We partner with one of Chicago’s most renowned storefront theater companies, Strawdog Theater, to adapt several stories by legendary Chicago journalist Ben Hecht into a radio play for live music and voices.

Little did we know at the time how far this project would go!  Since the premiere at Architectural Artifacts we’ve recorded a CD version, made a film version that was shown on PBS and performed it live on Chicago Public Radio.



Tuesday, May 21st – 7:30 PM Central
