The festival takes place at The Frontier Theatre off the Thorndale Redline stop this weekend, May 9, 10, and 11.

The festival also serves as a fundraiser for Cold Basement Dramatics; funds will support upcoming performances of The Half-Life of Memory by Jason Lindner and directed by Sophie Blumberg, opening June 6 at the DCA Storefront Theatre. The Half-Life of Memory is made possible thanks to an In The Works grant from the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events.
