Ruff Play Reading Series

by Karrine Keithley
directed by Stephen Ptacek
Monday, September 6th, 6:30pm
@ The Whistler
2421 N. Milwaukee

We're on the Brown Line to Lincoln Square. We're on the Metra to Arlington Heights. We're on an Amtrak to Kentuck-Montana. We're going somewhere that didn't exist, doesn't exist, or will cease to exist. We're spreading out faster and farther than we think. We're making sacrifices that will change us forever. Can we ever come back? If and when we do, will we even recognize ourselves? Karinne Keithley's DO NOT DO THIS EVER AGAIN takes us to an unreal place where real questions can be raised.

...character development is sumptuous and heartbreaking....ingenious production design." -NewCity

"Dead Letter Office is the first thriller I've ever seen performed live, on a stage, and I was impressed with how, well, thrilling it was." - Gapers Block
