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

This is one of the funniest shows I have seen in a long time. Great acting and they pack a lot into a very small area. Some of the best fight scene choreography I have seen, better than venues that charge five to ten times more for a ticket. They ask you to put something "in the pig" since actors work for free -- be sure to bring an extra $5 or $10 because they deserve it! Constant action and laughs. We continued laughing all the way home as we remembered lines, characters and action. Only a week left, GO SEE IT, you won't be sorry!!

Parked on the street next to theater. Everyone was very friendly and the
beverages were reasonably priced. The play was excellent, very funny
and campy. It made fun of everything it could think of, including itself.
Great job. Looking forward to...continued
Quotes & Highlights
“What really makes Street Justice work is the passion of the performers, who are having such a good time on stage that it’s impossible not to smile as they sink into further depths of depravity.” —Time Out Chicago (4 stars)

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.
