Forty floors up, behind the windows of a posh Swiss hotel, a man sings, a maid cleans, children run wild, a banker makes things difficult, and one elderly woman’s fight against a corrupt world order changes everything. Or nothing.
Zürich runs October 4th – November 10th at Steep Theatre, 1115 West Berwyn Ave., Chicago, IL 60640. For more information visit
