Join us for three nights of fiery conversation with members of Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation (CAASE). These post-show conversations are an opportunity for audience members to share their thoughts and feelings about the performance they have just experienced in a safe, active, and scintillating environment. Instead of a stale talkback or lecture, get ready to lean forward and engage with your fellow audience members, peppered by the experiences and insight of our amazing CAASE team!
