 YOU ON THE MOORS NOW

By Jaclyn Backhaus, Directed by Devon de Mayo, Presented by The Hypocrites

September 9th – October 30th

This crazy, funny show sets heroines from the 19th-century novels of Louisa May Alcott, Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters, in a mythical place of Moors. When our heroines receive proposals of marriage, they decide to escape. The men wage war on the women starting the Moors Wars. Jaclyn Backhaus’ ultimately moving and inventive play ends in beautiful prose like a chapter from the books these women originated.

HAND IN HAND

By Sofia Fredén, Directed by Breahan Eve Pautsch, Presented by Akvavit Theatre

September 15th – October 16th

In this madcap black comedy from Sweden, six accidental roommates struggle to find money, love and – hardest of all – their own apartment in Stockholm. Each works hard to manipulate the system in their own ways, but all of them are willing to go to extreme lengths to find a place (or person) to call home. They look for shelter in the wilderness, the bedroom, and, – in their most desperate moments – the government. As the characters lives spiral hilariously and disastrously out of control, they discover just how painfully high the cost of living really can be.

A WALK IN THE WOODS

By Lee Blessing, Directed by Patrick Belics, Featuring Sara Pavlak McGuire and Vincent P. Mahler

September 30th – October 23th

This Tony-nominated play by award winning playwright Lee Blessing follows one year of tumultuous arms negotiations between a young, hopeful American diplomat and a worldly Russian official who’s seen it all before. Directed by Artistic Director Patrick Belics (Spartan productions of “The Pillowman” and “Closer”,) “A Walk In The Woods” makes use of an unorthodox narrative structure to simultaneously illustrate the cold and impersonal nature of modern politics while putting a deeply human face on those who spend countless hours at the negotiation table.

THE FEAST

p-feastBy Celine Song, Directed by Gage Wallace, Presented by Red Theatre

Welcome to The Feast- where no meat is served. To fill the void, we reach for whatever is in our grasp – scientific facts, routines, memories, words and even each other. Red Theater presents this urgently consuming Chicago Premiere set in a post-meat apocalypse that asks just how far civilized people will go to fill their hunger.
