The headlines in March 1965, much like those of today, screamed racial struggle, violence and tragedy. On March 7, which later became known as Bloody Sunday, hundreds of civil rights activists marching from Selma to Montgomery were blocked, beaten and shot with tear gas by Alabama state troopers. Moved by the footage flooding the news channels, two women travel to Alabama to join the civil rights movement. But once there, they discover that the movement's challenges, much like their own, are more complex than they realized. Company member Amy C. Buckler directs this 20% Theatre Company Chicago world premiere by 20% artistic associate Laura Nessler. Learn More

Sometimes I forget how great The Factory Theater is, then I see another of their shows. Hey Dancing is terrific, a show about the local access cable shows that came before and after American Bandstand. The cast was great, good singers and dancers. So funny, I laughed with them the whole way through. Ladies next to me were appalled by the language and were rude and talked throughout, so if you can't take an F bomb or sexual innuendo and even a little dry humping, stay in Schaumburg and go to a bar where no one cares if you are loud and obnoxious! For everyone else, this is a MUST SEE, you'll love it and come out feeling very happy. Don't forget to feed the pig as you leave as this hard working cast does it for the love of the show and deserves at least a beer on you. DON"T MISS THIS ONE!!!

The show is great fun. The actors stay in character 100% of the time and it is awesome. They really capture the era in a completely over the top way. Costumes, make-up, hair, and music are all great. A student of the 80s and anyone between...continued

- “It’s a happy day for Chicago theater when the folks at the Factory get trashy and stupid.” — Chicago Reader

About the Ticket Supplier: Factory TheaterFounded in Chicago, Illinois in 1992, Factory Theater is a theater organization dedicated to the writing, directing, performance and production of original works written by ensemble members that are accessible to inexperienced as well as seasoned theatergoers. Since 1992 the Factory has produced more than 60 productions that have been enjoyed by both critics and audience members.
Factory Theater bridges the gap between critical acclaim and audience accessibility. Most of their shows have received rave reviews and awards by various publications including The Reader, New City, the Chicago Sun-Times, the Chicago Tribune, and L.A. Weekly, among others.
In 1998, Factory Theater opened a branch company in Los Angeles, California, and many of their ensemble members relocated out west to pursue careers in film, television and screenwriting and to help create a national presence for the company. Factory Theater has also taken trips out to New York on two separate occasions - in 1998 their After-Dark award winning production of The Vinyl Shop was the hit of the Fringe Festival, and in 2001 Factory was invited to the H.E.R.E. space in Soho by PSNBC to perform The Death And Life Of Barb Budonovich, a short version of their production Varations On Death.
The Factory attributes its success to hard work, dedication, and love for theater. Those attributes continue on in the Factory's vision of writing and producing new works to provide their ever-growing audience with laughter and inspiration.
