We wrote together in college before moving to Chicago to study comedy writing at the Second City. Six Hours Short’s first show, Chester and the Unbearable Burden, Parts I and II, fulfilled our mission: it’s about a subject we love (Harry Potter/Lord of the Rings), and entertained passionate fans (recommended by Mugglenet.com) and everyone else (recommended by Chicago Theater Beat).
