The Charter Arts Theatre Department is excited to announce its Fall 2021 Season!
Mother of the Maid by Jane Anderson.
Directed by Kelly Bickert. Charter Arts Theatre, October 22-24.
The story of Joan of Arc’s mother, a sensible, hard-working, God-fearing peasant woman whose faith is upended as she deals with the baffling journey of her odd and extraordinary daughter. This riveting play is an epic tale told through an unexpected and remarkable perspective.
30 Neo-Futurist Plays from Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind (30 Plays in 60 Minutes) by Greg Allen.
Directed by Kim Carson. Charter Arts Black Box Theatre, November 10-14.
Having opened in 1988 and still playing today as the longest running show in Chicago history, Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind is an ensemble experiment in presenting “30 Plays in 60 Minutes.” Each two minute play is performed in random order with an interactive audience. An onstage 60-minute timer keeps everyone honest. This collection of 90 comic, tragic, political, personal, and abstract plays gives you the chance to program your own evening of 30 Neo-Futurist plays to reflect the lives and experiences of your own ensemble.
