Join About Face Theatre and Affinity for a special afternoon of stories, refreshments, and conversation at Anderson Park.
This presentation of POWER IN PRIDE includes an original performance full of humorous and brave stories about gender and sexuality along with vibrant intergenerational conversation.
Based on true experiences from the ensemble, this play reveals stories of building a chosen family, maintaining self care, being a strong ally, and finding personal joy. POWER IN PRIDE invites audiences into positive dialogue to create more equitable and inclusive environments for all.
This performance is made possible through support from the Chicago Park District’s Night Out in the Parks initiative.
