Coronary_Artery_Perceptions_Theatre_Graphic_Nov_v5.png

Coronary Artery examines the public health crisis that is the Chicago red line. We follow Dennis, a 34-year-old black man leading his family to success, as he’s confronted with the sickness ingrained in his commute. As public health issues arise and intersect with displays of poverty, violence and mental illness this service has become a microcosm of Chicago societal issues. As the cultural climate on the train shifts and flows, Dennis, his family, and voices of those lost must navigate the injustices in front of him to secure his family’s future.


Runs: December 17th 2:30pm, CST- December 18th 2:30pm, CST
