Announcing our new show for 2017 ...
The Sweat of the Union
Shed the sorrows of 2016 and ring in the new year with hope and hilarity. Join the Sweat Girls at Fillet of Solo for tales of triumph, tumult, and tenacity.
With 23 years of shared history, the Sweat Girls have been called "the undisputed tribal elders" of the solo performance scene (Chicago Reader, 2014). Known for their "contagious gusto," the Sweats are glad to represent the greying edge of Chicago's burgeoning Live Lit community.
Running as part of Lifeline Theatre's 20th Annual Fillet of Solo Festival, The Sweat of the Union is written and performed by the Sweat Girls (as listed below for each performance).
Performers, Dates, and Times for January 2017:
Tickets: $10 for each individual performance

Free parking is available at the Field School parking lot (7019 N Ashland, entrance on Greenleaf between Ashland and Greenview) with free shuttle service before and after the shows.
