Event Details

The Small, Dark Room is created in collaboration with students from the University of Illinois at Chicago. This powerful production features the remarkable true stories of six Americans of Asian and Middle Eastern descent. Even in the face of such challenges as depression, suicide, disability and abuse, they find glimmers of light, of hope, of transcendence.
