Acting is superb. Set is stunning. Interesting story and likable characters. There are, however, considerable lags in the dialogue, due to deficiencies in the script, in its direction, or both.

Description

Vitalist Theatre in association with Premiere Theatre & Performance presents

The Chicago Premiere of

The Night Season

by Rebecca Lenkiewicz

Directed by Elizabeth Carlin-Metz

On a rooftop in Sligo, three heartsick sisters yearn for love. Below, their broken Da—the man who would be Lear—chases his visions and his demons, while their dotty Granny curses and dances. When a film star from the States arrives to play the poet Yeats, the world beneath their Irish moon turns upside-down. A funny and ferocious praisesong to the search for love.

Rebecca Lenkiewicz is a playwright, poet, and actress. Her first play Soho: A Tale of Table Dancers won a Fringe First at the Edinburgh Festival, while her second play The Night Season won the 2004 Critics’ Circle Theatre Award for Most Promising Playwright and was premiered on the Cottesloe stage at the National Theatre. Lenkiewicz’s other plays include Shoreditch Madonna, Blue Moon Over Poplar, a new adaptation of Stravinski’s The Soldier’s Tale, and Her Naked Skin, which premiered in 2008 on the Olivier stage at the National Theatre, making her the first living female playwright to have an original play produced on the Olivier stage.
