The Project(s) TalkBack

If you haven't already seen this amazing play Join us to experience The Project(s) !

Over the last few weeks American Theatre Company's Youth Ensemble has presented an abridged version of The Project(s), a critically-acclaimed documentary play on Chicago's public housing conceived, co-written and originally directed by ATC's late Artistic Director PJ Paparelli and co-written by Joshua Jaeger. The Youth Ensemble will present it's last showing of The Project(s) followed by a talkback with the National Public Housing Museum July 23rd.

As part of our ongoing partnership with ATC, National Public Housing Museum staff and interns will lead interactive talkbacks after the Sunday matinee performance at 2 PM.

In preparation for this year's production, the Youth Ensemble has met with former public housing residents and historians interviewed for the original production, many of whom are featured as characters in the play, in order to bring their powerful testimonies to life.
