             A night of brand-new, wacky, tender, wonderful, rib-tickling short plays by Chicago area playwrights! Featuring 10 playwrights, 30 actors, 10 directors, and 1 hot dog stand.


             With the ubiquitous hot dog as a connecting thread, THE HOT DOG STAND turns our everyday lives upside-down and shakes out a merry-go-round of extraordinary characters and remarkable events that remind us of the joy of the unexpected.
