When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again.

Reader’s Theatre Series: The Back Pocket Play
March 4, 7:30 p.m.
By Sonia Goldberg
It’s around midnight. In a sleepy side-street apartment in Chicago’s North side, Sam and Daina are faced with an unexpected visitor. After two years and zero communication, Crystal arrives out of the blue, just in time to help prepare for their friend Jaime’s scheduled release from prison. But she doesn’t exactly get a warm welcome. Unresolved tension surrounding Jaime’s arrest brews immobilizing hostility between old friends. THE BACK POCKET PLAY unearths issues of class, race, and privilege: can our individual identities blind us from the surrounding world? Sam, Daina, and Crystal start the conversation.
