This delightfully crazy comedy from Tony-nominated playwright William F. Brown (The Wiz) delves into the case of a staid East Coast psychiatrist who deals with his forbidden attraction to a nymphomaniac patient by writing a play about it. But all his psychodrama threatens to come spilling out when his teenage daughter discovers the script, and it somehow ends up in the hands of a literary agent -- who just happens to be the real woman at the center of his fantasy. It's a 1960s-style comedy in the spirit of The Dick Van Dyke Show and The Bob Newhart Show, with a nod to Love, American Style. Learn More

Loved the play and LOVED the theater. Am so glad we discovered it through Goldstar. The lobby is like being in someone's living room and the proprietor is kind enough to offer homemade cookies and bowls of nuts gratis. The theater is very small but has "stadium seating" so you have a good view of the stage no matter where you're sitting. You can also BYOB and there is no charge of corkage or glasses. My husband and I plan on returning often. As for the play, it was light-hearted and well-acted. Amazing how 10 actors could perform on such a small stage without bumping into one another. I highly recommend it!
About the Ticket Supplier: Oil Lamp Theater
Oil Lamp Theater was originally founded in February 2005 as a by-invitation-only theater group. The Theater was dedicated to the preservation of a traditional theater experience in unique and original venues. Keith Gerth staged 20 productions for up to 35 friends and guests each night in his home, a condo in Lakeview. The name of the company comes from Keith’s childhood, where due to the rural nature of his hometown, they lost power often and used oil lamps to light the house. This brought the family closer and created a beautiful soft and intimate glow. In March 2012, Oil Lamp Theater was incorporated as a not-for-profit theater and has established its new location in downtown Glenview. Our new venue provides seating for 60 guests.
