Cold Town/Hotline: A Chicago Holiday Story

Raven Theatre
6157 N. Clark St Chicago

December, 1983. Five volunteers have come together to answer calls for a hotline created to help fellow Chicagoans cope with the holiday blues. But with a record-breaking cold front sweeping across Chicago, these good samaritans are forced to hunker down for a long night together. When an unexpected visitor bursts through the doors, everyone must work to embody the season's most valuable lessons and transform their humble hotline into a home for the holidays.

"...For dogged seekers of sentimentality for whom The Gift of the Magi or It's A Wonderful Life are insufficient tinsel treacle, help is on the way! You will love Raven Theatre's unashamedly heartwarming, aggressively feel-good Cold Town/Hotline: A Chicago Holiday Story."

Splash Magazine - Somewhat Recommended

"...But the Christmas stories in this country are rife with life-affirming miracles, angels and happy endings. Very few families can live up to the expectations placed upon them by these fantasies, and the disappointments that follow can bring heartbreak and disillusionment. It is in the hearts and minds of children that we expect innocence to flourish and be protected, and it is the birth of a very special Child that the holiday is all about. If people can only believe in these values, perhaps the symbolic child can redeem us all."
