The talks, tours, and reenactments of Paul Durica's Pocket Guide to Hell are open to everyone but geared toward those who live in Chicago and want to know more about the city. Each program focuses on an aspect of labor history, social justice, or true crime. Participants are invited to challenge stories told, to tell their own, and to help create the experience. Props, costumes, music, poetry, and jokes are all a part of the dialogue. In this MCA Tuesday Evening performance, Durica explores the history of Streeterville.
