South Side Stories

January 8–26, 2014 (Hamburg Studio)
Written and performed by Tami Dixon
Directed by Matt M. Morrow

Back by popular demand for a limited time!
Embedded in the concrete of South Side’s city steps are testimonials of teenage mischief, steel mill toil, and townie haunts. This is a neighborhood where parking chairs mark territory and “paradise” is one turn off of 26th Street. Join us for the return of this audience favorite.
