A rotating lineup of writer/performers are pitted against one another in a series of one-on-one read-offs, with the audience choosing a winner. "Host and Overlord" Ian Belknap draws players mostly from the fringe theater scene (several Neo-Futurists were on hand at the performance I attended) and riffs extensively and aggressively on the Fight Club pun, proclaiming the "Write Club Rules." At its worst, the show offers monochrome political and philosophical opinions, received by the audience with sweet murmurs of assent. At its best, it lifts off into the realm of the personal and idiosyncratic, of family lore and childhood stories. Write Club is presented here as part of Rhino Fest, but there's also a monthly edition at the Hideout, 1354 W. Wabansia. --Keith Griffith
