Jul 14: The Freshness Initiative - Pro-Am
|Join Sideshow Theatre for the 4th Annual FRESHNESS INITIATIVE|
Each year Sideshow Theatre Company invites three of Chicago's hottest playwrights to develop brand new, full-length, totally fresh works inside the laboratory of The Freshness Initiative. During the year-long program, Sideshow artists and staff work with each resident writer to develop plays that intersect, explore and explode Sideshow’s aesthetic and mission. The result is three bold, fresh works for the stage that push audiences' expectations of what a Sideshow play might be.

The porn industry isn't what it used to be, but upstart performers in Miami are making the most of the amateur scene. Joe was a community college dropout who got fired from Jiffy Lube, but now he's transformed himself into an assistant talent scout; he finds the girls, flies them to Florida, and gets them the gigs. But they don't stick around for long- usually about three months- so the rental house where he lives with the talent sees a lot of turnover. Until Chloe Kendall arrives, determined to turn her stint as a "teen" star into a lasting career in adult entertainment, for herself and for her new housemates.
