Choosing to Be Here: A Storytelling Festival
A rotating cast of beginning and experienced storytellers weave tales of community, neighborhood, fitting in, and how we connect  sometimes successfully, sometimes not. Each night will feature a different combination of storytellers accompanied by live music from Mike Przygoda and Suzanne Osman. Each night culminates in Julie Ganey's acclaimed one-woman show Love thy Neighbor... till it hurts, directed by Megan Shuchman.

Join experienced storytellers such as Alison Cuddy from WBEZ, Arlene Malinowski, Jen Ellison, Kevin Gladish, Don Hall, Robert Koon, Earliana McLaurin, Kim Morris, Mary Fons, Arlene Malinowski, Andrew Reilly and Coya Paz, along with more than 20 newcomers!

Please go to the side project's website for the nightly schedule: www.thesideproject.net/detail.php?show=155

Directed by: Jason Gerace, Reshmi Hazra, Allison Shoemaker,  Megan Shuchman, Adam Webster, Eric Zeigenhagen!

Praise for Love thy neighbor till it hurts:
Long-time Rogers Park resident, Julie Ganey, asks: "What does it mean to be a good neighbor in a diverse community?" A tenacious look at how we misunderstand, mistake and misjudge each other  and choose to live together anyway.

Hedy Weiss of the Chicago Sun-Times calls the piece a "bristling, thoughtful, heartfelt response to an NPR piece by Ira Glass about real estate and the recession (that) winningly chronicles her various 'Kumbaya'-like efforts to come to terms with neighbors who see her middle-class presence as both irritant and threat."
