David Schwimmer on ‘Beyond Caring’ at Lookingglass

A portrait of the working poor, “Beyond Caring” was a hit in London and played the National Theatre in 2015. Now the show has been reworked for a Chicago audience by Lookingglass Theatre.

Joining us to talk about that transition is the producer of the play, actor David Schwimmer; and the playwright and director Alexander Zeldin

“Beyond Caring” is on stage at Lookingglass Theatre through May 7. Get more information at the theater’s website.
