Marísa and Lev have just moved into their new Pilsen apartment in hopes of rekindling a spark that’s long been extinguished. While looking for the circuit breaker in the attic, a mysterious coconut appears, leftover from the previous tenants with a dark history inside it. The Displaced explores the wake of pain and yearning left behind when gentrification forces people out of their homes and the kind of vengeance that can come from it.
Director, Jo Cattell. Written by Isaac Gomez. This play is a new work set in Pilsen, Chicago. This play is intended for adults.

“Haymarket,” first presented by Underscore under the title “Haymarket: The Anarchist’s Songbook” in 2016 to critical and audience acclaim, is back, with a vengeance. Having spent the last two years workshopping the show, authors Kornfeld and Higgin-Houser alongside director Nick Thornton have crafted an all-new theatrical experience, building on the success of its previous incarnation, creating new songs, overhauling the book, and like the union workers from the show, rebuilding from the ground up. Based on historical events, “Haymarket” tells the dramatic story of labor unrest in Chicago, 1886, where striking workers clashed with a brutal police force, resulting in an act of terror, a corrupt trial, and the death of five innocent men. Told by a cast of twelve actor-instrumentalists, “Haymarket” is a folk, bluegrass, and Americana adventure for Chicago, from Chicago.

Runtime: 2hours (including intermission)

Originally founded by Dole Roxy, The Church of Modern Love is comprised of people centered around one simple idea: “You Deserve To Be Loved.”. and they sing and dance in worship via a rock concert  and continue to thrive, even after Dole’s death (along with other members) in a fire in 1991.
Today, the church is stronger than ever; full of devout members who gather to honor Jenna, their savior. During the final phase of this audience’s “self search,” church members and leaders begin to unravel the world they built for themselves, and wonder why they joined in the first place.
The Church of Modern Love offers an immersive experience for the audience: As they enter the theater, they are members of the church.

In the basement of a small evangelical church in southeastern Idaho, a group of young missionaries is preparing to go to the Middle East. When one of the missionaries – a young man – has a crisis of faith on his spiritual journey, it reminds us that faith doesn’t come easily, no matter where you look for it.
