The nostalgia of Chicago’s Blizzard of 1967 will be presented via three performances of the original screenplay “The Storm Within”.This is the story of Lorraine Peterson, whose quiet home is turned upside down during the Chicago Blizzard of 1967. Seven guests are stranded in her home for four days, including her brother, whom she blames for her husband’s death. Lorraine has no choice-- she must face those she’s shut out of her life-- and her biggest fears. Illiteracy and agoraphobia are just some of the issues addressed in this family drama, written by local screenwriter Vera J. Brooks. “This January, 2017, marks the fiftieth anniversary of the ‘Blizzard of 67’ and my story reflects on this milestone amidst themes of forgiveness and renewed faith.” said Brooks. The performances will take place on Thursday, December 1st and Saturday, December 3rd at Global Girls Inc., 8151 S. South Chicago Avenue; Time: 7p.m. Tickets $20. The Sunday, December 4th performance will also include post discussion and refreshments. Tickets $30.
