Another Average Day
Tales of an Urban Adventurer

Three Algrenesque seriocomic monologues of urban adventure, "Another Average Day" is a look into 1970's Chicago and its neighborhoods against a backdrop of racial tension. "My Morning Walk" is a light, bright tour of Chinatown, Bridgeport, and the near south side. The funny and terrifying true experiences of a nineteen-year-old cabdriver, growing up rapidly to the ways of the world, forms "I, Cabdriver." "The Aquarium Factory" is a tour of a storefront near sweatshop and a look at the cast of characters who worked there.

"Another Average Day" was written and is performed by Rob Bronstein, a twelve-year company member of the Second City in Chicago (January 1982 - November 1993). At The Second City Rob contributed to the creation of fourteen original revues, all critically acclaimed. He also performed in "Activities of Daily Living" at the Blue Rider Theater in Chicago for the Remains Ensemble, and has performed his other one-person show, "True Stories From the ER That You’re Never Gonna See on Television!" for two runs in New York City.

Mary McAuliffe, a member of Chicago’s nationally famous Remains Ensemble for over fifteen years, directed "Another Average Day". Ms. McAuliffe’s credits also include directing the highly acclaimed "What Cops Know," "Girls! Girls! Girls! Live On Stage... Totally Rude," and "Portrait of a Shiksa" at Live Bait Theater in Chicago.
