After a recent performance at Joe's Pub in New York City, last year's queer holiday hit We Three Lizas is back with a revamped book and expanded score. Box maker Conrad Ticklebottom's life has hit a stumbling block. At one time, his purple box sparked an entire movement in art and design, but now he's been forgotten and teetering on ruin. Just in the nick of time, the holidays bring three magical figures to his door -- a trio of Liza Minnellis -- to escort him on a fabulous journey through what-was, what-could-be and what-the-f*?!, redeeming his lost promise and reinventing a brand-new Conrad Ticklebottom.

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.
