Jackalope Theatre Company in collaboration with the Chicago Inclusion Project presents CIRCLE UP!, a collection of new play readings fresh to Chicago.
Set in JTC’s Frontier venue at 1106 W Thorndale, CIRCLE UP! is dedicated to amplifying diverse stories of scope and providing safe harbor for evolving work. Each reading includes a post-show discussion, encouraging our audience to share and engage with the play over drinks and light fare. Bring your friends, bring your enemies, arrive with interest, leave with questions…

Good Bad People by Rachel Lynett
Directed by: Cameron Knight
June returns home in an attempt to make amends with her family, after her brother, Amiri, is shot by a police officer. But when her family refuses to make a statement and her personal beliefs are questioned, suddenly June is forced into the spotlight and must decide which is more important: family reconciliation or standing up for her brother's life.
