Prison is no laughing matter, but we’ll make an exception because some of the best improv actors in Chicago are throwing us a benefit. Again!

In this two-act show they’ll create scenes based on stories from our friend Colette Payne. Colette, who was formerly incarcerated, is a community organizer with Cabrini Green Legal Aid/Chicago Legal Advocacy for Incarcerated Mothers.

CAST Brooke Breit, TJ Jagodowski, Brett Lyons, Beth Melewski, Nnamdi Ngwe, Saurabh Pande, Dewayne Perkins, Asher Perlman, Sue Salvi, Jim Scheidhauer, Kevin Sciretta and Robyn Scott
MUSICAL DIRECTOR Julie B. Nichols

100% of the proceeds will go to Chicago Books to Women in Prison. Many thanks to all the actors and the theannoyance.com for donating their talent, time and space. Don’t miss it!
