All My Love, a new theatrical presentation about the perils and pitfalls of open romantic relationships, written by and starring Artistic Director Tony Fiorentino. All My Love is a smart, fun and thoughtful look into the world of polyamory and is the fifth production presented by Diamante Productions. All My Love is now open and runs through Sunday, May 10 at the Theatre Building Chicago, 1225 W. Belmont Ave. Performances are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3:30 p.m.
The play follows middle-aged divorcée Ellen, as she explores the world of open relationships. While juggling multiple men, she must temper the jealous passions of her primary lover, Jack, while teaching her twin daughters, Abby and Lynn, the meaning of love through the prism of polyamory. The play takes an interesting turn when Jake decides to seek his own romantic opportunities within their alternative lifestyle, threatening Ellen with the competition of a younger rival. All My Love is a critique of Western society’s most cherished notions of love, monogamy, and marriage.
All My Love is offering $10 off all tickets when a group of ten or more people buy tickets to a single performance. To reserve your group today call 773.327.5252 and mention the code “POLY GROUPS” when purchasing ten or more tickets.

A quick reminder for next month’s Poly Weekly Book Club. Since it turns out that the city location isn’t convenient for most of the group, I’ve scoped out a new one that will be closer for most regular PWBookers:
122 N. Marion St.
Oak Park, IL 60301
It’s 1/2 block from the Oak Park Metra stop and 1 1/2 blocks from the Harlem Green line stop. Metered parking lots are available on South Avenue and next to the shop. It just opened up two weeks ago, and they have a great room in the back with big tables for us. Menu includes coffee, Italian gelatto and even a few panini. They’re thrilled to have a book club meeting there, and it’s a lovely, quiet place for us!
Wednesday, September 3rd, 6:00-9:00 p.m.
Book: If the Buddha Dated (and please come on out to meet with poly folks, even if you haven’t read the book!)
Please RSVP so I’ll know to look for you or if you have any questions.
