A contemporary adaptation of Oscar Wilde's classic novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, this unique production is performed promenade-style, where you follow the action and actors around the space, and features an intriguing blend of dance and dialogue. Dorian -- young, beautiful and aimless -- has just arrived in the big city, where local artists and critics have eagerly brought him into their fold. After a talented and frustrated painter named Basil Hallward crafts a gorgeous portrait of Dorian, the painting's young subject wishes to remain forever as lovely as this two-dimensional representation of him. And for many years -- through wild parties, brokenhearted lovers and occasional damage to the painting itself -- Dorian, growing steadily more wicked, does indeed remain flawlessly youthful. But what, if anything, will break this strange spell? With compelling choreography, acting and staging comes The House Theatre of Chicago's DORIAN, a modern spin on Wilde's rumination on youth and beauty. Learn More

A fiercely provocative twist on a Lorca classic that takes you to a part of the house where no one dares go. After the death of their father, five sisters are forced into eight years of mourning by their mother Bernarda. In the stifling heat, desires, dark secrets and jealousy escalate while their sex starved 80 year-old grandmother is in love with the mysterious and forbidden man. In an attempt to find happiness with her lover she entices her youngest granddaughter to plot their escape from Bernarda’s tyranny. Featuring Teatro Vista ensemble members Charin Alvarez, Laura Crotte, Sandra Marquez and Juan Villa with Julia Neary, Rachel Cerda, Tanya Saracho, Lily Mojekwu, and Ilana Faust. For this production Teatro Vista has extended a special invitation to visual artist Luis DeLaTorre to create a spectrum of dramatic visuals.
