My 49th Ward Service Office is often witness to more than its share of life’s dramas. This August the drama will be staged as my Ward Service Office hosts one of six plays that The Side Project Theater is presenting on location throughout the Jarvis Square neighborhood.
Other locations that will host the one-act performances throughout the month of August include Gruppo di Amici, Elite Auto, Charmer’s, Poitin Stil, Luzzat, Taste Food and Wine, and, of course, The Side Project itself.
The Side Project, is taking its shows on the road to celebrate its tenth anniversary in Jarvis Square. Located at 1439 W, Jarvis, this small, 30-seat theater has been entertaining Rogers Park audiences with thought-provoking productions since 2001.
