Winner of both a Tony and a Pulitzer Prize, Wendy Wasserstein fearlessly borrowed from her own personality when creating the protagonists of plays such as The Heidi Chronicles, Old Money and The Sisters Rosensweig. These characters tended to be like herself -- intelligent, funny, liberal, and immensely accomplished. The heroine of Third, Wasserstein's last work before her untimely death at age 56, is similarly gifted ... but also smug, over-confident and dangerously shallow. Laurie Jameson is a professor at an elite liberal arts college and a steadfast feminist. When one of her students turns in a paper she finds far too good for such a "privileged white male" to have written, she starts a plagiarism investigation that quickly morphs into a review of her own prejudices. In no other play is Wasserstein as witty, as compassionate, or as critical of her own beliefs, as in Third, the capstone to one of the most distinguished careers in Broadway history. Learn More
January 18, 2012 – February 12, 2012: All Through the Night
by Shirley Lauro
A highly theatrical depiction of four German, gentile, women fighting to manage their lives through the rise and fall of Adolph Hitler. This Jefferson-nominated Best New Chicago Play of 2006, is based on actual interviews with women who navigated the landscape of fascism from the inside. "A significant and intensely moving new work by a proven Broadway playwright, with enough daring to look at the polarities of war, with a strong sense of the complexity of human limitations." —Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune (Recommended for ages 13 and older)
March 7, 2012 – March 31, 2012: The Rise and Fall of Little Voice
by Jim Cartwright
In a working class town in Northern England, Mari Hoff is desperate for the elixir that will make her feel alive. And she’s not the only one. Her teenage daughter, LV is a shut in who lives by the light of the records left by her father. Turns out she’s a prodigy who can perfectly imitate the great vocalists she loves. Enter a seedy talent agent with big plans for Little Voice’s future, and a quiet young phone man with his own electric dreams, and you have a delirious burst of light to lift us all. (Recommended for ages 16 and older)
April 18 – May 13, 2012: Exit, Pursued by a Bear
by Lauren Guderson
From the author of last season’s provocative and sensual, Emilie, comes a new, razor-sharp comedy. “I Love Lucy” meets Jacobean revenge tragedy. Nan Carter is a woman at the end of her rope. She’s married to underemployed, deer-huntin, Jack-guzzlin’ Kyle, who’s turned into nothing but a constant source of pain—in more ways than she cares to count. Inspired by her friends and a compelling stage direction from Shakespeare, Nan sets out to teach Kyle the ultimate lesson. (Recommended for ages 16 and older)
