October 26-November 26 - DEAD CITY
Dead City by Sheila Callaghan
Directed by Jarrett Dapier
Raven Theatre, 6157 N. Clark St.
Oct. 27-Nov. 26, 2006
Dog & Pony Theatre Company embarks on a second collaboration with playwright and Dog & Pony artistic associate Sheila Callaghan in the Midwest premiere of Dead City, which follows the company's successful winter 2005-2006 production of her play Crumble (Lay Me Down, Justin Timberlake).
Dead City is Sheila Callaghan's "love letter to New York that masquerades as hate mail," according to The New York Times. While bringing her sexy hubby his mail one morning, Samantha Blossom notices an envelope from his lover. This sends Samantha spinning out onto the New York streets alone and emotionally dead until she meets a "punk-rock pauper poet" girl half her age. Featuring the raw, passionate energy of Patti Smith, instant message seductions, and catharsis in a kinky club, Dead City is Sheila Callaghan's modern riff on James Joyce's Ulysses. Don't miss this hyper-kinetic, hilarious romp Variety magazine calls "dangerous" and "gripping."

03/01/2010 - SOUND CITY
Various sites throughout Chicago
Admission is free
The streets of Chicago are the stage for this interactive audio tour that draws attention to movements and participants in Chicago's political history by telling the story of the places where they existed. Local artists create ten audio portraits of such landmark sites as the Hull House, Tree Studios, Meigs Field, Haymarket Square and 19th Street Beach.
SoundCity is an interactive theatre piece by multiple means. Audience members will use a map to guide them to the locations included in the production. The audio portraits and maps will be accessible via the web as podcasts and as downloadable image files respectively. A list of business partners across the city distributing CDs and printed maps will soon be announced.
