Royko: The Toughest Man In Chicago
Mike Royko was a daily columnist and Chicago institution for 34 years. He amassed over 7,500 columns, writing five columns a week for most of his career. Everyday he spoke truth to power, advocated for the little guy, and exposing corruption. He could be charming, sweet, mean, angry, rude, and sometimes drunk. No one wrote more about the inner workings of a city and the working class people who made it run more than Mike Royko. This play moves us through Mike Royko’s life from a depression era bartender at age 13 to the toughest man in Chicago.
