2nd Act Players

The 2nd Act Players is the Chicago area's best-kept theater secret. We’ve been producing new works for the stage since 2013, featuring more than 40 new actors in those shows. We’re the place to come to see stories about how people deal with major 2nd acts in their lives such as divorce, heart disease, war, and caring for an aging parent, to name just a few of the topics we’ve tackled.

    A very well-written, insightful look at an important issue most would rather pretend doesn't exist -- sexual abuse and the objectification of female students in high schools. We selected it as one of six winning scripts in our 2018 #MeToo Script Competition and held two weekends of staged readings of it and five other winners to widespread audience acclaim.
