April 25: Quill - Two Plays by William Inge & Tennessee Williams
Raven Theatre presents two plays by William Inge & Tennessee Williams in their Quill reading series
In tandem with their production of Phillip Dawkins' The Gentleman Caller, Raven Theatre will be hosting staged readings of short plays by William Inge and Tennessee Williams.
Wednesday, April 25, 2018 at 7:00-8:30pm
Raven Theatre | 6157 N. Clark St., Chicago, IL 60660
In A Murder by William Inge, a private man with a box of memories seeks lodging at a strange boarding house—a place where the weather and time itself can change in an instant. When the man discovers the dead body of a young boy in the wardrobe, we wonder if we really have crossed over into another dimension.
This Property is Condemned by Tennessee Williams returns to Raven for the first time since our production of this in 1990! On a railroad embankment on the outskirts of a small Mississippi town, a 12 year-old girl named Willie spends her days balancing on the tracks (attempting to break a record), and avoiding the now condemned home where she's been abandoned.
Featuring Lynne Baker, Phoebe Gonzalez, Chris Peltier and Sam Woodhull. Directed by Eli Newell.
