It has been one of the hottest, driest autumns on record, and now a strong wind blows from the Southwest. At 9:40 pm, the Chicago Fire Department gets their first report of a small blaze on the city’s southwest side. Soon there is no stopping the Great Chicago Fire until it finally runs out of things to burn. In one night, the very rich, the very poor, and everyone in between are transformed forever.
Featuring Ensemble Members Thomas J. Cox, Christine Dunford, and David Kersnar, with Anjali Bhimani, Kim Leigh Smith, Troy West, and Gary Wingert.
