After police rough up a street vendor near the David L. Hynn Housing Projects, Ida takes an interest in the homeless man who sleeps on a nearby bench. When an unlikely friendship emerges, will it strengthen her connection to home or drive her away in search of a new life? The Chicago Premiere of BlackTop Sky, from celebrated playwright Christina Anderson, examines the intersection of love, violence and seduction inside an institution with a haunting Chicago legacy: the public housing project.
