Adapted from the popular children's book of the same name, this spoof on the tale of the three little pigs (each with their own individual sense of home construction style) who were pursued by a ravenous wolf, aims to show a different side of the familiar story. In the biggest trial to hit Piggsylvania in quite some time, the Big Bad Wolf is trying to clear his name. Claiming to have been a victim of circumstance -- namely a particularly sneezy cold that caused him to inadvertently blow down some shabbily constructed homes while trying to borrow a cup of sugar -- it's up to you and your little ones to decide whether the Big Bad Wolf is as innocent as he claims to be in this fun, family-friendly musical.

If you love adult storytelling and/or public radio you will love this show. However, if you fall asleep easily if there's not much visual stimulation then this may not be the show for you. I'd been trying to see 2nd Story for Years and was thrilled to see them in this festival!

8:30pm Solo Sampler 1: Julie Ganey & Caitlin Parrish
Dorothy Milne hadn't noticed that time was passing and suddenly her generation is in charge. Worse yet, she's in charge! With her older relatives passed on, Dorothy is definitely a grownup now — and making it up as she goes along. She sure wishes she'd paid more attention when the oldsters were still around to tell her things.
Dorothy has been Artistic Director of Lifeline Theatre for 11 years and has been reporting on her life from the stage in group shows with the Sweat Girls for the past 17 years. This is her first solo excursion. Directed by Sharon Evans.
Kim Morris, Doug Whippo and John Wilson explore the arc of human experience. All are company members of 2nd Story, a wildly popular, Chicago-based storytelling troupe that performs regularly at Webster's Wine Bar in Lincoln Park and the Morseland in Rogers Park.
Solo Sampler 1: Julie Ganey & Caitlin Parrish
"The Half-Life of Magic" by Julie Ganey: A half-believer navigates the space between story and truth. Ganey examines the stories we tell ourselves as she wrestles with fairies, Michelangelo, a priest, and Harry Potter - not necessarily in that order. Directed by Amanda Delheimer.
"Strapped" by Caitlin Parrish: An industrious young woman delivers a treatise on economics, sex, and the American way.
