Artemisia, A Chicago Theatre, will open Something Blue on October 25, 2012. This world premiere play is written by Julie Proudfoot and directed by Azar Kazemi.

Something Blue is about the passionate but combative marriage between two creative types. Mia is an artist whose career is hamstrung by her husband, Parker, a struggling writer and closet conservative. To break out of her creative rut, Mia paints a disturbing self-portrait that drives Parker to violence and to question her sanity. As Mia regains her self-confidence, she makes a dangerous discovery that leads to a shocking twist in the play’s final scene.
