Murder, lies, and corruption provide the fuel for the play Giving Ground. Giving Ground follows 4 young legal associates as they navigate a network of high-stakes power brokers, shady corporate entities, & corrupt politicians. When one of the four is murdered, the other three begin to probe the mysterious circumstances surrounding the crime. Can they discover who killed their friend before the police do… or before they get killed themselves? The play has characters that breathe & a plot that keeps you guessing, and it's peppered with insight into legal issues that affect Chicagoans on a daily basis.

Giving Ground has been structured into four 20-minute acts, separated by intermissions during which moderated discussion will occur focused on numerous ethical & substantive legal issues raised by the preceding act.

Special government attorney rate of $100. Government attorneys and non-attorneys wishing to register please call 312-554-2056.
