An anthem for our time, I Hate it Here looks at the ways people do (and don’t) deal with a world on the brink of explosion. Commissioned by Studio to create an audio work, award-winning Chicago writer Ike Holter brings his sharp humor to the complexities of stepping into a new decade with the odds already stacked against your favor.
Part of Studio In Your Ears. Intimate and immediate, Studio's audio plays bring the thrill of great writing and great acting directly to theatregoers' headphones. Available beginning Winter 2020.
Thank you to Board Chair Amy Weinberg
and her husband Norbert Hornstein
for generously underwriting the audioplay series,
