Street Justice: Condition Red takes you back to a time when jeans were acid-washed, hair was teased and all fight sequences involved slow motion and synthesizers. Factory Theater presents a razor sharp send-up of buddy cop movies of the '80s, featuring all your favorite tropes from this raddest of genres. One cop plays it by the book. One cop breaks all the rules. Both are on a deadly mission to defend Chicago from the most cunning criminal mastermind since Scarface himself. In these mean streets, there is no right or wrong, only Street Justice. Learn More

<p>By Len Jenkin
Directed by Corri Feuerstein</p> <p>It is night, we are in America, and the time is now.</p> <p>The voiceless drifter...a young girl...the down-and-out businessman...a carnival barker...the mayor of nowhere...the struggling reporter...a restless woman...the singing con artists...the mad professor...all of their disparate desperations struggling to be heard. These are the people in our neighborhood.</p> <p>This is interesting country. Look around.</p> <p>Part intertwined character sketchbook, part postcard collection, and held together by desperation and coffee-fueled late-night conversation; American Notes is a surreal journey into the American Myth and the mysteries of Who We Are, What We Do, and Is That Crocodile Dead? Jenkin's darkly comic tale keeps us wondering what's lurking just beyond our view. WAFF Artistic Director and co-founder Corri Feuerstein directs the play and its multifarious miscellany.</p> <p>Featuring: F.Tyler Burnet, Devon Carson, LaQuin Groves, Andrew Jordan, Scott Pasko, Tony Piscotti, Jenna Rabideaux, Justin Speer, Melissa Tropp, and CW van Baale</p>
