The Chicago that inhabits this engaging Literary Picture Show resounds with a barely missed deliverance. South Side Trilogy introduces the soul of a Chicago that has one hand in the pocket of its own death, and the other hand in the pocket of its own ghost. As revealed through the varied literary techniques, and sound and images (performed monologues, original music, soundtrack music, visual art and video) that compose John Hospodka's innovative experience, Hardscrabble is the purgatory into which Chicago has arrived to gather a few breaths before being seized by the uneasy obligations of her own confessions; and it is the neighborhood into which Hospodka's vision has come to lurk amongst the South Side's imagination and bestow a mercy-tinged, yet unapologetic voice upon the American literary landscape.
