Pick your next theatrical adventure at Artemisia's 2015 Fall Festival. Fall Festival audiences chose Jaki McCarrick's Belfast Girls for full production and critics called the show "gut-punching," "heart-wrenching" and "impeccable." For the fifth year in a row, Artemisia stages six, full-length, new female-driven plays. Performances are Sept. 18, 19, 25 & 26 at 8:00 pm on Friday and 2:00 pm and 8:00 pm on Saturday at The Frontier/Jackalope Theatre, 1106 W. Thorndale Ave., Chicago IL 60660. Reservations are strongly encouraged due to limited audience seating and can be made at artemisiatheatre.org. Admission to all six plays is free; donations are accepted.
This year's line-up of plays are Somewhere in the Middle, by Julie Proudfoot, Converting to Bangladesh by Victoria Cano, Bohemians, by Jaki McCarrick, Maize, by Judith Pratt, Cuttings, by Thomas M. Atkinson and Visiting, by Ed Proudfoot. From these staged readings, the festival audience will choose their favorite play for full production in one of Artemisia's upcoming theatre seasons. Audience members must attend a minimum of two performances to receive a voting ballot.
What do an idealistic college student, an ex-punk rock star, a homeless painter, an eccentric, reclusive plant geneticist, a woman disabled by a childhood accident and a brilliant high school student with a family history of depression have in common? They're all leading characters in feminist plays searching for full production and featured in the 2015 Fall Festival. Make your reservations beginning August 1st at artemisiatheatre.org and pick Artemisia's next hit show.
