The headlines in March 1965, much like those of today, screamed racial struggle, violence and tragedy. On March 7, which later became known as Bloody Sunday, hundreds of civil rights activists marching from Selma to Montgomery were blocked, beaten and shot with tear gas by Alabama state troopers. Moved by the footage flooding the news channels, two women travel to Alabama to join the civil rights movement. But once there, they discover that the movement's challenges, much like their own, are more complex than they realized. Company member Amy C. Buckler directs this 20% Theatre Company Chicago world premiere by 20% artistic associate Laura Nessler. Learn More

The piano playing -- as a collection of off-kilter christmas melodrama -- would have been enough. Arching eyebrows and overblown gestures of silent movies are used as a theatrical grammar to delineate the story (as a hybrid of mime and, say, kabuki). The ghosts' costumes were also wonderful -- particularly Christmas Past. Everyone there loved it, and everyone felt a little special for loving it -- it is simultaneously slightly avant-garde and extremely accessible.
