    OUR FIRST ORIGINAL PRODUCTION OF GLOSS OVER


    GLOSS OVER  Our first production, in partnership with Working Women's History Project, was based on the true stories of Chicago homeless women from Deborah's Place.  Set in a working salon and spa, characters received real time beauty treatments by technicians as they revealed their stories.  On a music cue, the audience traveled from room to room...hearing their stories and coming to the realization...they were a dime away, a job away, a paycheck away from being just like them.

    It was a call for empathy, understanding, volunteering and giving. HER STORY THEATER raised thousands of dollars for Deborah's Place and the women of Deborah's Place saw their stories come to life through the eyes of the artists.  A once in a life time experience for cast and crew of HER STORY THEATER and the women of Deborah's Place.

    Thanks to Salon Echo and Maria Sigman for her generosity and support.
