May 20: Church of the New Play: Rev (Reading)
Prop Thtr presents new play reading by Rachel Bykowski
Church of The New Play is a weekly reading series featuring new work by local Chicago writers, devisers, and text generators of all performance forms. In each session, a new piece is read or presented followed by a talkback tailored to the artists' needs. This is an alternative to a script submission policy in that it gives creators' the space to present their work as it's meant to be experienced: live and out loud.

Church of the New Play presents...Rev by Rachel Bynowski
Synopsis: Camaro Gibson loves only three things in this life: strawberry glazed donuts, her Daddy, and Route 66. Born and raised on the Southside of Chicago in her Daddy's car repair shop, Camaro dreams of hitting the road; taking historic Route 66 all the way to the West Coast. Camaro has never seen the ocean before, only in her Daddy's stories. She is determined to break out of the Southside and take him back to his home. Camaro keeps her daddy's heart in the repair shop: a 1967 Chevy Camaro engine. For the last ten years, since her daddy passed away, she has been trying to get that baby to rev. Today might be the day, if it wasn't for the customers still coming in and a lot full of cars that need a lot of work. Something keeps her showing up everyday. Whether it's the motor oil, diesel fuel, or rusty carbonators, she keeps plunging her hands in the grease because it feels like home.
