How to Pick a Lock

The year is 2030. The entire Chicagoland area is heavily militarized. Only the richest 1% have easy access to the internet, food, clothing, and basic necessities. The rich expect everyone else to make do with scanty rations on top of poor wages, housing instability, rare access to health care, the constant threat of incarceration, and dwindling Constitutional Rights.

Thankfully, there are those who choose to resist. Zahra is a lockpicker, and she knows that her skills can help Chicagoans liberate and access the resources they need. How To Pick A Lock is a recreation of Zahra's first skillshare, when four special audience members help her learn that the work of liberation is never a solo affair.
