The 10th Annual Living Newspaper

The Frontier | 1106 W. Thorndale 

In homage to the 1930’s Living Newspapers of the Federal Theatre Project, Jackalope assembles an exciting group of Chicago playwrights, directors, and actors to dramatize stories ripped from recent newspaper headlines. Hosted by Liz Sharpe, Helen Joo Lee, Diego Colón, and Jon Cohen, the 10th Annual Living Newspaper Festival is produced by Monet Felton and Danielle Stack. Lighting Design is by Claire Sangster, and Scenic Design is by Mara Zinky. The Festival’s articles are curated by Jon Cohen.
