IMG_1235FREE STREET THEATER KICKS OFF A SUMMER OF SPOOKY STORIES

Free Street’s 100 Hauntings draws on real people’s stories from across the city to ask: what’s haunting Chicago? From an elevator operator named Jorge who doesn’t know he’s dead to the legacy of housing laws in Chicago, 100 Hauntings offers audiences a fun and spooky campfire-style experience that aims to resurrect our city’s most ordinary hauntings. Performed by a multigenerational ensemble of storytellers, comedians, and actors from around the city and presented in collaboration with the Chicago Park District’s Night Out in the Parks initiative.

Directed and Developed by Coya Paz and Bobby Biedrzycki for Free Street Theater

If the terrified tears of Coya Paz’s 7-year-old daughter are a reliable litmus test, 100 Hauntings may not be appropriate for all ages.
