See “Nickel and Dimed” at the Greenhouse Theater!

In Chicago this summer? Come to Greenhouse Theater on August 9th at 8:00 p.m. to see “Nickel and Dimed,” directed by Dani Snyder-Young ’99. This play, based on Barbara Eihrenreich’s book of the same name, strives to open “up a productive conversation about social class by engaging audiences in the story of a journalist who attempts to earn a living as a waitress, a maid, and a retail worker, only to discover how truly difficult it is to make ends meet on working-class wages.” This play is a must see for anyone interested in social justice and civic engagement. This performance will be followed by an insider discussion with the cast and director. Learn more at http://bit.ly/12Q6FvG and we hope to see you there!
