Quotes & Highlights
" … a wholly wonderful show that is profound, yet at the very same time whimsical beyond all imagining." —Chicago Sun-Times
Written by Victory Gardens Ensemble Playwright Philip Dawkins, Failure: A Love Story is a magical, musical fable about the triumphs and aspirations of three sisters living in the rickety two-story building by the Chicago River which was the Fail family home and clock shop in 1928. Nelly was the first to die, followed soon after by sisters, Jenny June and Gerty. As with many unforeseen circumstances in life — blunt objects, disappearances and consumption — they never saw death coming. This profoundly funny and moving holiday offering reminds us that in the end, all that remains is love.
The play runs 90 minutes and is recommended for those ages 8 and older.
