Victory Gardens' CRIP SLAM is partnering with WRITE CLUB, a live lit show like you've never experienced before! (Cue the Rocky theme song)

RSVP HERE! https://goo.gl/DCpWgX

Access Project storyteller favorites will duel over contrasting ideas. 3 bouts. 6 combatants. Each writer gets 7 minutes to make their case and the audience selects the victor! Who will win?

CRIP SLAM is the Access Project's ongoing series of performances, readings, movies and live events that promote, explore, and celebrate disability culture.

WRITE CLUB Chicago is a foul-mouthed and fast-paced evening of personal essays going head-to-head on assigned topics. It’s been named “Best Literary Event’ by the Chicago Reader, Time Out Chicago, and New City.

The main event will be 2 WRITE CLUB regulars squaring off against 4 of our Access Project writers you know and love. Our combatants and their topics are:

TWO EXTRA DAYS TO FIND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS
Mercy (Michael Patrick Thornton) vs Justice (Josh Zagoren)
Late (Corrbette Pasko) vs Early (Tekki Lomnicki)
Comply (Michael Herzovii) vs Rebel (Terri Lynne Hudson)

Come, cheer them on, and help us create even MORE division! Doors and bar will open at 6:00 so arrive early and get rowdy!

RUNTIME: 90 Minutes
BAR: Cash - beer, wine, and a specialty cocktail starting at 6:00
SERVICES: Open Captioning, ASL Interpretation, Wheelchair Accessible Seating
