As the world wages war in 1945, Miss Mary's beauty parlor and boarding house in Memphis, Tenn., is a popular gathering place for local African-American women. Amidst the hustle and bustle of primping and preening, Miss Mary's provides these ladies with the perfect social setting in which to exchange tales of their soldiers overseas. As the war's end looms somewhere on the horizon, these women wrestle with an uncertain future, finding love and friendship in the most unexpected of places. This Chicago premiere of Saturday Night/Sunday Morning continues Prologue Theatre Company's mission to produce untold historical stories from underrepresented voices, expanding understanding in Chicago's theatre community.

This is an incredible show no one should miss. Clever, funny, poignant, did I mention clever? The acting was superb by all members and the story was both entertaining and witty. The right balance of camp and drama. I highly recommend this production.
Written by Emily Schwartz
Directed by Jimmy McDermott
Chased across the sea by destiny and Marconi's wireless telegraph, this factual (and fanciful) turn of the century tragedy explores the bizarre story of this homicidal homeopath by having three different actors (Scott Cupper, Matt Holzfeind, & Stuart Ritter) portray the part of our dear, diabolical Doctor.
The Strange Tree Group returns to its grand guignol roots with this marvelously macabre tale about love, death, daring escapes and a bathtub full of body parts.
