Youth incarceration is one of the most complex issues of our time. And Steppenwolf for Young Adults’ production of Monster, which tells the story of a 16-year-old aspiring film-maker in juvenile detention, puts the issue into striking perspective. On Saturday, February 18, take an in-depth look at the juvenile justice system and the power of art as a rehabilitative tool at The Keys to Monster—a pre-show reception and panel discussion featuring guests from Northwestern University’s Children and Family Justice Center and Storycatchers Theatre, a storytelling group that has been working with court-involved young people for more than 25 years. Tickets include admission to the evening’s performance of Monster at Steppenwolf. A cash bar will be available.
