When a lost tourist stumbles into the back room of an Illinois history museum, she discovers that there's a story behind even the smallest of artifacts. Anybody's Story: 200 Years of Illinoisans and Their Stuff is a series of vignettes inspired by the objects in the Bicentennial & Beyond exhibit at the Illinois State Museum - watching the play will literally be like watching these objects' stories come to life.
