This event is free on a first come, first served basis. Doors open 30 minutes before a program. Programs typically last one hour.

From W. H. Auden to Lewis Carroll, John Updike to Ogden Nash, Ezra Pound to Dorothy Parker, some of our brightest poetic minds have enjoyed using their skills in works designed to tickle our funny bones. This program will bushwhack through poetry in English, bouncing from Robert Lowell to Edward Lear, Emily Dickinson to Wallace Stevens, and Elizabeth Bishop to Edna St. Vincent Millay. Under the direction of Bernard Sahlins, a trio of Chicago’s finest actors will bring us an evening of poems and laughter.
