When: Fridays-Sundays. Continues through April 9 2017

Tellin' Tales Theatre is a staple in the Chicago storytelling community, one that brings together disabled and nondisabled artists to share nonfiction narratives built around a universal theme. This set of long-form stories, curated by artistic director Tekki Lomnicki, finds hope and humor in the frightening, unsparing realities of aging. Steve Glickman revisits his relationships over the years as a gay man in Chicago, and Judi Lee Goshen chats about the social pressures of being a woman at any age dating a younger man. The biggest takeaway is from Lomnicki herself, who, in a story that makes no effort to romanticize taking care of an elderly parent, makes a powerful case for accepting major life transitions as they come. —Dan Jakes
