THE Library

By Scott Z. Burns

January 12th, 2017-feb 4th, 2017

"The actors do a fantastic job emotionally portraying the community trying to come to terms with what happened and move on." - Playlist HQ

"A very heartbreaking show [...] an insightful play about being a teenager in such a terrible situation" - Ada Grey

Clinical but wrenching [...] there are some astutely captured moments here." -The Chicago Reader

Synopsis

The Library tells the story of Caitlin Gabriel, who survives a deadly shooting at her high school. She struggles to tell her story to her parents, the authorities, and anyone who will listen. But there are other narratives that gain purchase in the media and paint her in a different light. The Library is a bold and chilling play that asks us to examine our relationship to the truth, and the lies that claim to heal us.

THE IRISH CURSE

By Martin Casella

May 19th, 2016-June 12th, 2016

"[...] all performances are on-the-money in a simple in-the-round staging." -Windy City Times
"[...] the production is hilarious and dramatic. The entire cast is fantastic and they feed off each other's energy expertly." -Playlist HQ
"[...] an incredibly funny and crass journey that takes an honest glimpse into the pants and hearts of a group of greatly troubled men." - Theatre by Numbers

 

SYNOPSIS

From its blistering language to its brutally honest and comedic look at sex and body image, The Irish Curse is a revealing portrait of how men, and society, define masculinity. In doing so, it dares to pose the fundamental question that has been on the minds of men since the beginning of time: "Do I measure up to the next guy?"
