Crime Scene: Let Hope Rise


Original Run Dates: July 12th - August 24th, 2013


Crime Scene Chicago: Let Hope Rise is an updated theatrical reaction to Chicago’s history of violent crime and a call to discover what it might take to CREATE LASTING CHANGE IN OUR CITY. The show couples nonfiction source material such as interviews, articles, and online comments with re-enactments of true Chicago crimes to raise critical questions surrounding segregation, poverty, the news media, popular culture, and our numbness to it all.
