What was once a relaxed and cordial workplace turns into a tension-filled hotbed of mistrust and deceit when a white physician sets out to get rid of his black receptionist by recruiting her white female co-worker as a spy. Steppenwolf ensemble member Ora Jones stars with Rivendell's own artistic director Tara Mallen in local playwright Joel Drake Johnson's dark comedy, which explores the current state of "post racial" relations in the workplace. Rivendell Theatre Ensemble, Chicago's only professional theater company focusing on female-centered works, stages this world premiere. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
- "The Electric Baby is illuminating. It made me care about these strangers’ lives. It made me misty for their losses and their gains. It inspired me to believe in the magic of a moonbeam." --Chicago Theatre Beat (3.5 stars)
- "Though riddled with tragedy and loss, Stefanie Zadravec’s play is an often humorous, beautifully told tale of redemption, forgiveness and hope." --Chicago Stage Standard (3.5 stars)
- "Zadravec deploys her endearing quirks with a good amount of grace and conviction ... H.B. Ward and Meighan Gerachis, in particular, are painfully (I mean, painfully) good as the average couple." --Chicago Reader
