About this show

The Coast of Chicago is based on Stuart Dybek's 2004 One Book, One Chicago selection, a collection of stories about growing up in Pilsen, an ethnic neighborhood on the south side of Chicago. Adapted for the stage by Laura Eason and directed by Gary Zabinski, the adaptation focuses on three of Dybek's stories - "Chopin in Winter," "Hot Ice" and "Nighthawks" - and explores the human ability to transcend the effects of loss, poverty and prejudice with the power of myth, memory and imagination.
