Tarell Alvin McCraney's latest acclaimed play tracks the coming-of-age of a group of talented young African-American prep-school singers whose choral prowess is woven seamlessly into the story. Pharus, the undisputed superstar of the choir, is searching for the courage to let his true self shine through, in this work by MacArthur Fellowship-winner McCraney (The Brother/Sister Plays), who's been called "without question, the hottest young playwright in America" (Chicago Tribune). The West Coast premiere reunites director Trip Cullman, star Jeremy Pope and several other cast members from its 2013 New York run. Learn More

Limited run, so hurry if it's still open! Excellent performance of a great play--not just comic, but a serious exploration of good/bad and the moral complexity of life, all with Wilde's characteristic wit. Performance uses several places on the grounds of the magnificent Clark Library on West Adams, an ideal setting. Terrific ensemble cast. A few lines get fluffed, but overwhelmingly, they do a dazzling job, and the English accents (indispensable for this play) are pretty convincing. Very powerful, moving performance!
This is a site-specific theater production that is performed outdoors. The audience will move to follow the action throughout the show. There will be times where the audience is encouraged to stand, but there will be seating available in all of the areas for each scene. Please wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk and stand for periods of time.
The production runs 2 hours, with an intermission and is recommended for those ages 10 and older.
