Season Two of Our Fair City launches October 15!
Hello, OFC Kickstarter supporters!
Hope things have been going well for you---we've been very busy on our end! We very much hope you've enjoyed Season One of our show---if you haven't had a chance to hear it in its completion, do check out our website---it's all there! However, that's not what we're messaging you about--
HartLife is incredibly proud to announce that we will officially launch Season Two of Our Fair City on Saturday, October 15, 2011! Episodes will continue to be released every Wednesday after that.
We'll also be throwing a launch party on the 15th at SILVERSPACE in Chicago, a really neat loft space in Wicker Park-1474 N. Milwaukee Ave!
It's going to be a great time: we'll have a "screening" of Episode 1, along with a live recording of the classic HP Lovecraft story "the Rats in the Walls" (just in time for Halloween) featuring Season Two actor Sebastian Orr and cellist Ira Ochs. Betsey Palmer and the Catharsis Junkies (her creative team) will be setting up booths at the party where party-goers will be assigned Identity Variance Scores, Work Assignments, Relationship Status, and Housing Allotments ala HartLife/Our Fair City.
There will be a $10 suggested donation/pay-what-you-can for the event, and the art space allows BYOB. We'll also have all the OFC merch (buttons, shirts, posters) available. The funds will all go towards continuing to make Our Fair City bigger, better, and more efficient. Please, please---invite friends, family, and anyone else to the event! We're hoping it will be really fun.
Thank you all so much for your support!
