One Story Told Week by Week

  • Under The Gun Theater 956 West Newport Avenue Chicago, IL, 60657 United States (map)

We interview an audience member about a crime they may or may not have commited. Then we explore the "crime" through interviews and Improv scenes. Lets look at the time line one more time.

One night only! 

The Chicago Tribune said:
"...Angie McMahon's performance in the Koenig role. There she sits off to the side, calmly speaking into a microphone and capturing Koenig's smooth, honeyed vocals and conversational tics...McMahon is essentially the show's director, interrupting and scuttling scenes as soon as they head off on lackluster tangents. She's running the show, and her instincts are sharp."-Nina Metz

NewCity Stage said:
"For “One Story,” the cast interviews an audience member about a time they were “falsely accused” and then, led by host and creator/director Angie McMahon, who has a killer Sarah Koenig impression, calls witnesses, questions memories and imbues the whole thing with canny mock earnestness. The show works best when it’s following the “Serial” structure—replaying scenes from different perspectives, allowing McMahon to question the accused, hearing from experts. "- Zach Freeman
