  • Meg Benson @ Writers Theatre!

    You're Being Ridiculous is super excited to present our FUTURE-thmed new show at Writers Theatre on SATURDAY, April 27! AND ... we're delighted to welcome Meg Benson to YBR to share a story with us ... learn a little about Meg here and get your tickets!

    Meg moved to Chicago more than 40 years ago from Grand Rapids Michigan. She works in the heart of the Loop, riding in from the suburbs on Metra, but one of these days she’ll move back into the city. She's married a nice boy from Rogers Park. They have three grown daughters and our terrier Trevor.

    What's your current profession?
    I didn’t become a nun or a librarian. I became a legal aid attorney. I love my job because I get to vanquish bullies.  My clients are poor and a mess but they get my help for free. It’s a great feeling to beat up (in court) some lowlife who thinks it’s ok to cheat an immigrant, a single mom, or a mentally ill person. I feel like a superhero. 

    Meg is sharing a story with us at Writers Theatre Saturday, April 27.
