The year is 2030. The entire Chicagoland area is heavily militarized. Only the richest 1% have easy access to the internet, food, clothing, and basic necessities. The rich expect everyone else to make do with scanty rations on top of poor wages, housing instability, rare access to health care, the constant threat of incarceration, and dwindling Constitutional Rights.
For the students of Climb & Succeed Charter Academy, the slightest defiance is met with riot-gear-clad security who patrol the halls informed by an AI bot. The harrowing new disciplinary codes that take ‘in-school suspension’ (ISS) to a haunting extreme.
The Stoop will be hosting a special Stoop in Humboldt Park and teaming up with The Healing Jodonas to share stories, art, poetry, and healing!!!
The Stoop is OVERJOYED to be teaming up for an afternoon of music, poetry, and healing FOLLOWED by stories from some of Chicago's most influential and moving people.
The white people have been shrunk and now live among the ants. The only people left are people of color so now everything is how it should be. Join us as we use sketch comedy to imagine a world without Kyle and Becky, a world where the Ed Hardy brand doesn’t exist, a world where IT’S ONLY PEOPLE OF COLOR!!!!! Wait, if all the white people are gone then...who are we gonna make fun of? Jk, it’s still white people.
