Lee is known for her adults-only parodies of popular songs, while Hugg is a Chicago stand-up comic who's performed at Zanies and elsewhere. Learn More

Caffeine Theatre at Stage 773 presents
a play by Caridad Svich
Directed by Joanie Schultz
Spinning madly off of the Greek myth of Medea, Wreckage begins when two boys wash up on shore, not knowing who or where they are, only that they have no choice but to keep moving in a strange world that may or may not be the afterlife. As they wander through this new landscape they soon learn the value of their youth and beauty, as well as the inevitability of pain and loss. Gender roles and parental roles alike lose their accepted meanings, and we begin to understand how fragile identity really is.
Cast: Dana Black, Tim Martin, Ian Daniel McLaren, Sean Thomas, Jeremy van Meter
