About Face Theatre


Home Project, must see performance at Victory Gardens Theatre 7/14/2006

I used to live near Belmont, walking along the Boys Town commercial district several times a day, fully aware of the colorful variety of characters that hang around that street, and the reality that everyone has a story. But there are more stories than any of us can possibly imagine, and these stories transcend the stale data and stats in reaching our hearts and shaking us to action. \r One young woman is proud that most of the men she sleeps with think she was born that way. Some of the street urchins have formed a self-defense group on Belmont to fend of attacks by violent crews. A young man in St. Louis has to escape his cruel home life and chronic homelessness, but won't forget to pack the ugly statue his little brother and sister got him. And a South Side youth bounces from shelter to shelter, well aware that people weren't meant to live in such places. These are some of the stories presented in the three-week run of About Face Youth Theatre's play the Home Project, a collection of true stories that was written and directed by Megan Carney in About Face's tenth season which have brought eight years of original plays to the stage. \r \r read full review at chicago indymedia Pros: great show, must-see for chicagoans especially Cons: some un-even performances more
