Opening Monday, June 7th, from 8PM - 10PM
(*hopefully) THE END IS NEAR! Join Rough House and Links Hall for a live puppet spectacular that’s actually kind of live. It’s still a livestream for the audience, but the artists are gonna be in the same dang studio with the puppets breathing the same dang air!
It’s FREE to watch. Any donation you make (suggested: $10-$15) goes to the artist and to fostering new works of puppetry in Chicago. Get your “tickets” ahead of time to support the cabaret, or donate during the stream!
