It's Like a Heat Wave

Our August 2005 Selection Heat Wave is coming to the stage, thanks to local playwright Steven Simoncic, Live Bait Theater and Pegasus Players. Chicago Magazine talks to both Simoncic and author Eric Klinenberg about the book's adaptation and whether a social disaster in 1995 is still relevant today. (Check out Slowdown for info on catching one of the preview shows.)
