SPIEL CHICAGO INTERVIEWS THE LOOSE CHICKS!
SPIEL CHICAGO is a bi-weekly podcast that explores the progressive and thoughtful work of women in Chicago theater.
“I have had a long and interesting life,” says producer Roberta Miles. She chronicles her experiences (“Sex gone wrong stories–I have a lot of those”) in one woman show and in her monologues performed at Loose Chicks, a bi-monthly storytelling performance co-produced by Jillian Erickson. Roberta began writing after she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and found herself spending a lot of time in bed.
