Season Poster

Choir Boy by Tarell Alvin McCraney – A Chicago Premiere

Determined to make his mark like those before him, Pharus is hell-bent on being the best choir leader in the school’s fifty-year history. First he must gain the respect of his peers, but he’s an outsider in a world steeped in rites and rituals, a community that demands he conform.

Nice Girl by Melissa Ross – A Chicago Premiere

Josephine has a dead-end job, still lives with her mother, and has settled into the uncomfortable comfort of unintended spinsterhood. But when she’s given the possibility of change, she takes tentative steps towards a new life. A play about the tragedy and joy of figuring out who you are and letting go of who you were supposed to be.

The Gentleman Caller by Philip Dawkins – A World Premiere

A world premiere play by Philip Dawkins (Charm, Le Switch), that imagines what might have happened behind closed doors in 1944 when Tennessee Williams met critic William Inge, who, like Williams, would later become one of America’s greatest dramatists. 

 Suddenly, Last Summer by Tennessee Williams – A Classic

Catherine Holly has witnessed the murder of her cousin Sebastian.  When Sebastian’s mother, Mrs. Venable, invites a psychiatrist to question Catherine about her story, she paints a picture so graphic it’s almost unbelievable.  One of Tennessee Williams’ most haunting pieces.
