Take a look at what's in store for our 2015/16 season. We'll present nine productions, each sure to impress!


Main Stage Series

Really Really

September 23rd - October 1st

Paul Downs Colaizzo's Really Really is a startlingly funny play about a group of Generation Me college students in the aftermath of a wild campus party. When morning-after gossip about privileged Davis and ambitious Leigh turns ugly, self-interest collides with the truth and the resulting storm of ambiguity makes it hard to discern just who's a victim, who's a predator, and who's a Future Leader of America. All that's certain is when the veneer of loyalty and friendship is stripped back, what's revealed is a vicious jungle of sexual politics, raw ambition, and class warfare where only the strong could possibly survive. 

Written by Paul Downs Colaizzo

Directed by Brandy Joe Plambeck

Main Stage Series

Failure: A Love Story

April 28th - May 20th

By the end of 1928, all three Fail sisters will be dead -- expiring in reverse order, youngest to oldest, from blunt object to the head, disappearance, and finally consumption. Tuneful songs, and a whimsical chorus follow the story of Nelly, Jenny June, and Gerty as they live out their lives above the family clock repair shop near the Chicago River, before their time unexpectedly runs out. A magical, musical fable where, in the end, the power of love is far greater than any individual's successes or failures

Written by Philip Dawkins

Directed by Jill Dion and Molly McMahon
