It’s the final three days for a stage production at Trinity University that follows the single day of a cab driver in Chicago as he picks up fares in the racially tense and sometimes seedy areas of the Windy City.

While the play calls for 36 characters, Attic Rep took on the challenge of using only seven actors.

The play, "Hellcab," takes place on the day before Christmas in Chicago. The weather is brutally cold, and a cab driver is reporting in at 6:30 a.m. for what will be a 14-hour shift.
