This being a comedy, however, Frank is diverted from his high-minded path by his love for the beautiful Celimene, a bored aristocrat with an equally sharp tongue. The plays virtuosic use of language turns their verbal duel into theatrical fireworks of the highest order.

This vibrant one-woman show portrays the dynamism of a neighborhood. Embedded in the concrete of South Side's city steps are testimonials of teenage mischief, steel mill toil, and townie haunts.

Written and performed by Tami Dixon.
