Grace Forum Online with Abby McEnany: Work In Progress  

April 27, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Abby McEnany is a writer, comedian, actor and Chicago improv mainstay. She is the co-creator, writer, executive producer and star of the Showtime television series Work in Progress, a semi-autobiographical comedy-drama about a self-identified “fat, queer dyke” entering into a transformative relationship during a time of crisis. Much of the story of Work in Progress, which ran for two seasons 2019-2021, is about Abby, the character, finding opportunities to live, when she has just about given up hope.  

Each year the cathedral chooses a theme for inspiration and reflection, and in 2022 our theme is connection. Join Dean Malcolm Clemens Young for a conversation with McEnany about what it’s like to be one of the few people like her in film and television, and how her work deepens our connections to each other.
