A nursing home in northern Idaho is shutting down, making the futures of the longtime employees and three remaining patients uncertain. Even worse, Gerald, a 91-year-old patient suffering from Alzheimer's, has wandered off. The search for Gerald takes place in the midst of a record-breaking blizzard, but that's not the only crisis the staff is dealing with. This Midwest premiere by award-winning playwright Samuel D. Hunter and director Joanie Schultz -- the same team behind last season's The Whale -- is an emotional and funny look at life with plenty of unexpected twists. Learn More

Three million people are in Chicago in August 1968 with three million stories about the events that unfolded. Through a collage of viewpoints from police officers, journalists, clergy, and demonstrators, we visit the Democratic National Convention and the riots that ensued. New live music, projections, and a standing-room performance all result in a fast-paced look at a piece of Chicago’s history.
