Join Sideshow Theatre for the 4th Annual FRESHNESS INITIATIVE
Each year Sideshow Theatre Company invites three of Chicago's hottest playwrights to develop brand new, full-length, totally fresh works inside the laboratory of The Freshness Initiative. During the year-long program, Sideshow artists and staff work with each resident writer to develop plays that intersect, explore and explode Sideshow’s aesthetic and mission. The result is three bold, fresh works for the stage that push audiences' expectations of what a Sideshow play might be.

Mechanisms of Fidelity
By Ariel Zetina
Directed by Jonathan L. Green
Dramaturgy by Lucas Garcia
1920s rural Spain. Matriarch Maria returns from a visit to her first husband's grave with her four adult daughters in tow to find her husband Porfirio's horse missing. She knows where Porfirio is: with his younger woman Socorro. Ariel Zetina's Mechanisms of Fidelity, explores traditional and contemporary versions of fidelity and infidelity, of monogamy and polyamory, with the work of Federico Garcia Lorca as the backbone. Four sisters, a matriarch, a patriarch, lovers, husbands, a maid. Oh, and a hooved neighbor, who is also Death.
