Feb 4: The Official Biography (Reading)
Chicago Dramatists' Saturday Series: FEBRUARY
Playwrights, theatre artists, and the general public convene in the Chicago Dramatists' theatre to witness the birth of a new work for the stage and to participate in its development by offering feedback to its playwright. The plays are always directed and rehearsed and are presented with minimal staging. After each reading, the audience members are invited to fill out written response sheets and to join in a post-reading discussion.

The Official Biography
By Network Playwright Kurt McGinnis Brown
Directed by Andrea Tymer
Henry Percival was on top of the literary world after publishing We Need to Talk, a novel in which the narrator commits a gruesome crime. Sales were boosted by rumors that the novel was autobiographical. Decades later, Xan Smith’s new essay about Henry’s famous novel leads to a commission to write a full biography—which is certain to be a bestseller if Xan can show that Henry not only is a great novelist but also a murderer.
