Produced at The Teal Room at Pub 626, Stories at the Pub is 2nd Story’s monthly programming series. Audiences get to enjoy a delicious craft beer with a perfectly crafted story in this intimate Rogers Park venue. 

2nd Story Public Access Program

In the spirit of our core value of Inclusion and to eliminate financial barriers to our programming, we are introducing the 2nd Story Public Access program. For every show in our After Dark, 2nd Story on the Stage, and Stories at the Pub performance series we will set aside 10 free tickets.

This Hanukkah, 2nd Story celebrates the everyday miracles of keeping our own lights flickering as we grow and change, both within ourselves and within our communities. What do you do when you discover your partner isn’t who you thought they were? Or when you hurt someone in the process of trying to connect with them? How do we come to terms with our desire to be seen publicly as who we are — even if that same visibility scares us, too? And, of course, that age-old Bar/Bat Mitzvah question: what does it mean to become an adult, and how do I do it?

Celebrate and learn about Hanukkah with 2nd Story this year by joining us for four stories that explore the continual processes of finding our light: of becoming ourselves and figuring out where and how we belong.

Finding the Light: Stories of Becoming and Belonging is presented as part of 2nd Story's "Point of View" programming. Given the nature of 2nd Story's work and the diversity of artists we collaborate with, we have the unique opportunity to build community among and share the stories of marginalized groups by building teams for our shows that share a particular point of view. It is our honor to be a conduit for these collaborations. Finding the Light: Stories of Becoming and Belonging is led, produced, and performed by artists that identify as part of the Jewish faith.
