Dying City

by Christopher Shinn

Directed by Richard Glockner 

In Dying City, a young therapist, Kelly, whose husband Craig was killed while on military duty in Iraq, is confronted a year later by his identical twin Peter, who suspects that Craig’s death was not accidental. Set in a downtown-Manhattan apartment after dark, scenes shift from the confrontation between Peter and Kelly, to Kelly’s complicated farewell with her husband Craig. Shinn’s disturbing, sophisticated drama—infused with references to 9/11 and the war in Iraq—explores how contemporary politics and recent history have transformed the lives of these three characters.

Mad Forest

by Caryl Churchill

Directed by Cynthia Goatley 

Caryl Churchill’s Mad Forest places ordinary people into the churning realities of acting and defining revolution. With a wedding being planned, two families must navigate what should be a joyous occasion of union against the onslaught of threats, hearsay and chaos, that eventually topple a megalomaniacal regime. With similar events in Egypt not too distant, Churchill’s play, set in Romania during December 1989, presents a theatrical perspective on “revolution” that will speak to us all – as individuals, members of family and community, and citizens of the world.

Guernica

Before 9-11, there was Guernica! The Spanish town of Guernica was home to a tragic historical event that inspired Picasso to create a masterpiece. Guernica, the play, follows Eric, a young aspiring artist who meets a man claiming to be Pablo Picasso, offering him a seductive opportunity: create an even grander canvas. Join Eric, the Man, and his mysterious friends as they explore the creative process and the madness of war while the "Guernica," on exhibition, comes to life in this passionate, intellectual drama. The Strayer-Wood Theatre presents the Midwest premiere of this award-winning play.
