Storyline

A local Chicago legend, Joyce Piven has taught thousands of students theater games. Joyce encourages her students to face the chaos of creativity with open hearts and minds; she leaps into the open space where art is made. Among her students are her son, Jeremy Piven, and her friend Nancy Cusack's children (including John and Joan Cusack). During the fortieth year of the Piven Theatre Workshop, co-founded by Joyce and her late husband, Byrne Piven, Ravi Batista, an actress in Joyce's production of Chekhov's Three Sisters, interviewed Joyce, her family and her former students to learn more about Joyce's life. It's an inspiring story of one woman's passion for acting and theater and how she shared it with thousands of kids in Evanston, IL. Written by Ravi Batista
