local theater night
SOLD OUT. Join Leadership Evanston and ECF at the debut production of a story about race, housing, and equity in Evanston — and who has access.
A "talk back" will immediately follow the show.
This collaboration is presented by Fleetwood Jourdain Theater and Piven Theatre Workshop. The work was inspired by the playwrights’ research, and by the interviews of several Evanston community members conducted by the founder of Dear Evanston, Nina Kavin.

During this year-long project exploring the concept of home, Piven has created additional partnerships with Shorefront Legacy Center, Cradle to Career, and Bridges Residential Facility. Piven uses applied theater to encourage community reflection and engagement in support of a healthy and vital community.
