Our Fair City
About This Show
Our Fair City is a campy, post-apocalyptic audiodrama.
Founded in 2011 with the help of some incredibly generous Kickstarter donors, Our Fair City has quickly become a notable entry in the audiodrama world. Produced by a staff of Chicago storefront theatre veterans, experienced sound designers, and science educators, Our Fair City has won awards and critical acclaim for its dynamic acting, incisive writing, and high level of production.
Led by creator Clayton Faits and executive producer Jeffrey Gardner, the HartLife team produces original audio drama, as well as a comic anthology, an acclaimed series of live performances, and high-concept launch parties.

Mid-Season Break- Songs from Al's Bar
Welcome, Loyal Polices, to the Mid-Season Break! While the MolePeople are busy editing the second half of the season, we've got some fun stuff to share with you. Today we've got two songs used in the background of the show, either in Al's bar or on the radio, adapted and recorded by the cast, crew, and friends of Our Fair City. First, we have "Haul Away Mole," a MolePerson Dirt Shanty (adapted from the traditional tune "Haul Away Joe"), followed by "Rolling Down to Tunnel Three," a Lightning Rigger working song (adapted from Stan Rogers' classic "Rolling down to Old Maui").
