Quotes & Highlights
“… you could actually see the part of Beatriz, a role with some commonalities with Mother Courage, kicking Allen, whose chops truly are formidable, in the head. Repeatedly. In real time. It felt to me like all of that amazing early stage work in Chicago was all coming back to her, slowly, partially, in stages, a wheeling series of revelations that totally matched the rolling, rolling through the years notions of the actual play in which she is starring. Real-time reason enough, dear reader, to buy a ticket. You may see me there again.” —Chicago Tribune
Directed by Ensemble Member Tina Landau
This production uses flashing lights, theatrical haze, loud sound effects, and live and recorded gunshots. There are strong images of war and violence.
