1001 Afternoons in Chicago Album

1001 Afternoons in Chicago is an original radio play created in collaboration with Strawdog Theater and based on stories of Ben Hecht.

Before going to Hollywood to become a famous screenwriter, Hecht lived in Chicago and wrote for the Daily News.  During this time he challenged himself to write a short story every day for a year.

The best of these have been collected as 1001 Afternoons in Chicago and the best of those have been chosen by us as the basis for a unique radio play combining storytelling and music by Amos Gillespie and Seth Boustead.

“It’s a masterpiece,” – Rick Kogan, Chicago Tribune
