"Unconditional" is Nashville playwright Myra Stephens' unflinching look at life on the streets -- a mother and daughter and their community of lost souls, all living under an elevated train bridge on the streets in Chicago. Their love, and the strength and support of their adopted family, must survive the trials of the world around them, counting on each other to be at their best when the world is at its worst. "Unconditional" runs at the Darkhorse Theater, March 2-10 2012.
