HALCYON THEATRE

Dreams of the Penny Gods, by Callie Kimball

Christ Lutheran Church, 3255 W. Wilson Ave.

Bug is just your average 13-year-old girl who happens to have been born into a criminal family that’s hiding out in a storage facility. So naturally, she’s transformed herself into a high priestess who’s trying to raise the dead. On this particular summer day, her incantations seem to work, setting off an acceleration of events ending in a rough Armageddon that launches her into the world.

TWO LIGHTS THEATRE COMPANY

Art Forms in Flux (Stage Two)

Hairpin Art Center, 2810 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL

Inspired by the script for their upcoming production of State Park, by Chicago playwright Aaron Weissman, this unique program invites seventeen artists (aka Fluxists) to be in residence at Hairpin Arts Center for two weeks as they develop original work in response to the text.  An exhibition of the work created will be presented and open to the public for an evening. The exhibition, entitled Stage Two, feature visual art, performance, dance, new media work, and experimental happenings. The Hairpin will be transformed into a vessel for the unknown, the incredible, and the absurd.

IRISH THEATRE OF CHICAGO

Spinning, by Deirdre Kinahan
The Den Theatre, 1333 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago, IL
Conor is fresh from prison, grasping at the threads of his life. Susan is grieving the loss of her teenage daughter. Two lives collide in a seaside cafe, and are forever changed. Deidre Kinahan, playwright of the acclaimed Irish drama, Moment, masterfully unspools a gripping contemporary tale over three distinct timelines in this U.S. premiere.
