For the 7th year, Serendipity Theatre Collective is proud to present our annual 2nd Story Festival at Webster’s Wine Bar. This year promises to be our biggest and best yet, with three weeks of expertly crafted stories, each one paired with a taste of wine and live music for our city’s top DJs and musicians. 12 nights, 54 stories and 5,000 glasses of wine. Oh man, it’s gonna be so good!

Just wanted to share 2nd Story with you. I love the event. Love the stories. Love the concept. Love the website.

2nd Story is a project presented by the Serendipity Theatre Collective in Chicago. They collaborate on projects with other local regional theatre companies including The Goodman, Theatre Seven, Columbia College and I’d imagine others I’ve not yet seen.

This event is still going on and tickets are available. You’ll see from their website future performances, collaborations and even workshops on the craft. While they use notes for their storytelling they’re clearly performances and not simply readings. They’re adult themes for adult audiences. Their stories are very well told and thoroughly entertaining. Just a sampling below.
