Does it feel like home

LOYOLA UNIVERSITY CHICAGO

Mar 3rd-4th 2022

Sometimes home is as simple as a feeling, tucked away in a fragment of time that we don’t or actively choose to not remember. DOES IT FEEL LIKE HOME, led by Minh Hà (Millie) Lê, is a reflection of home, its complexity, comfort and permanence. Through a two-week workshop, collaborators will use moment work to create and perform original scenes, spoken word and suitcase puppetry, examining the home we came from and the home we have now.

EVERYBODY

NEWHART FAMILY THEATEr

feb 17-27th 2022

A groundbreaking adaptation of the medieval morality play EVERYMAN, Branden Jacob-Jenkins’s EVERYBODY considers what we bring with us into death and what we leave behind. Just as life is unpredictable, actors are randomly assigned a new role every night. With dozens of possible casting combinations, audiences will witness a performance unlike anything they have ever seen. A Pulitzer Prize finalist, this metatheatrical piece asks the existential questions without the heaviness, making death both witty and full of life.

Join us for a talkback with medieval scholar Edward Wheatley and dramaturg Minh Hà (Millie) Lê after the EVERYBODY performance on Friday, February 25th.

POLAROID STORIES

NEWHART FAMILY THEATEr

sept 30th - oct 10th 2021

In telling our stories, perhaps we all can become gods. Drawn from Ovid’s Metamorphoses and interviews with homeless youth, Polaroid Stories uses the prestige of Greek mythology to illuminate overlooked voices in the contemporary United States. Playwright Naomi Iizuka navigates the epic and the intimate in this synthesizing play about dreams, desperation, and desire in a harsh reality. The vulnerable and marginalized characters transcend violence and loss through storytelling and song. As they share the true and devised details of their lives, the figures become as magnificent as the Greek gods themselves.
