You can park around the back of Chief O'Neill's restaurant. Dress casual. Dining nearby is plentiful. We like Chicken and Salad works for a quick meal. Chief O' Neill's is good for dinner, and Tanos has a good quick pizza.

Take an intimate theater, stuff it with a 50's mystery thriller, blend it with the supernatural and you have the most exciting 70 minutes you can find this season! Great acting & total fun. Loved it!

Quotes & Highlights

Check out a preview video of the show.
“While our encounters in live theater can be hit and miss, it’s so wonderful to applaud at the curtain call and mean it.” —Chicago Theatre Review
Centerstage Chicago called The Gray Girl a “Must See” show.
“Kudos to director Matt Engle for generating honest-to-God chills with his brisk staging of Colin Milroy’s new ghost story-cum-crime thriller about vengeance and shady dealings in mid-20th-century Chicago.” —Time Out Chicago (4 stars)


Written by Factory ensemble member Colin Milroy and directed by Factory ensemble member Matt Engle, The Gray Girl closes out the 2011 Factory season with a haunting 1950s tale about the destructive power of revenge. A Chicago newspaper reporter uncovers crime and corruption at Riverview Park. The story could fast track his career, but the consequences might be more than he bargained for.
