Subject matter is heavy. Actors did a very good job.

Interesting story. Not what you expect when you first catch on to where the story might be heading. Worth the price. Would definitely recommend to others.

I couldn't get invested in the characters or storyline -- the acting seemed painfully phony and rushed at times. The acoustics were also horrible. I've seen several shows at this theater (produced by different companies, though) and never...continued

About the Ticket Supplier: Eclipse Theatre Company

Eclipse Theatre Company chooses one playwright per season and focuses on the works of that playwright only. Through this total immersion in a specific playwright's world, the ensemble gains a thorough understanding of that playwright and the circumstances of his/her writing in order to bring a more concentrated and literate representation of that playwright to the audience.

Playwrights who have written more than three plays are eligible for consideration, as well as playwrights who have shown a definite range of growth throughout their careers. On deciding which plays to perform, a great factor is the challenge that the piece presents to the ensemble and its audience.

Since the inception of the one playwright-one season mission in 1997, playwrights that have been featured with Eclipse include French Playwright Jean Cocteau; Legendary American Playwrights Tennessee Williams, Lillian Hellman and Neil Simon, New York Playwrights Romulus Linney and John Guare, and Chicago native Keith Reddin.
