(PARAGRAPH 5) by Blake Levinson, Writer Studio Member

Directed by Gloria Bond Clunie

Featuring: Kristie Berger*, Tony Bozzuto, Terri Lynn Hudson, Razz Jenkins*, Johnny Kalita, Doug MacKechnie*, Amy Malcom*, Reginald Robinson Jr.*, and Scot West

Inspired by real people and events, this is Chicago in the 1950's-- a tumultuous time of white flight, racist mortgage regulations, and unethical sales contracts. This poignant drama begs the question that resonates to this very day: When thousands of families were being cheated out of their dreams, why did the city of broad shoulders just stand back and shrug?

About the Saturday Series

Every Saturday afternoon at 2:00 PM (except for holiday weekends), Chicago Dramatists hosts a Saturday Series event in our theatre. Most Saturday Series events are public readings of plays-in-progress.

All plays read in the Saturday Series are directed, rehearsed, and presented with minimal staging. After each reading, the audience members are invited to fill out written response sheets and to join in a moderated post-reading discussion.

We hope you will join us for this Saturday Series event!
