Escape into the romance and splendor of the Italian countryside in Theatre-Hikes' production of Matthew Barber's Tony-nominated drama at The Morton Arboretum. The theater company's innovative approach marries stage favorites and nature walks, with scenes held in various locations in parks and along hiking trails. Bring a blanket, water and comfortable shoes so you can enjoy the surrounding natural beauty during jaunts between scenes on the arboretum grounds. You'll be following the story of two frustrated London housewives who dream of a temporary escape from their bleak marriages after reading an ad for Italian villas to rent. They reluctantly recruit the elderly, ill-tempered Mrs. Graves and the gorgeous-but-chilly Lady Caroline Bramble to help defray the cost. Together in a lush Mediterranean setting, these four very different women experience an unexpected reawakening of their hopes and desires. Learn More

We have been to several Theater Hikes at the Arboretum and love the experience. The shows are inventive and designed to appeal to adults as well as children. Alice was not our favorite adaptation, but we look forward to a new show next month.
Run time of play is 90 minutes, with the hikes in between scenes. The show should be no more than 2 hours 30 minutes.
Please bring your own water. Theatre-Hikes also suggests bringing a picnic or snacks along for the hike. Wear comfortable hiking shoes or boots (avoid open toe shoes and flip-flops).
About the Ticket Supplier: Theatre-Hikes
Theatre-Hikes – “Environment, Exercise and Entertainment.”
We perform family friendly productions outdoors with scenes separated by short hikes. Each show contains a hike around 2 miles separated by 3-10 scenes.
The specific purposes for which Theatre-Hikes is formed are for establishing and maintaining theatrical performances combined with hiking, offering an event that travels to various locations; and as most performing will be outdoors, Theatre-Hikes hopes to nurture in the public, a respect for the preservation of hiking trails and the local, city, county, state and national parks where these trails can be found. Theatre-Hikes will seek to involve diverse populations in its staff, board members, volunteers and audiences. It will have a strong commitment to use actors who are members of Actors’ Equity Association (AEA), the union of professional actors and stage managers. Theatre-Hikes will compensate all staff and actors who are not members of AEA.
