A remount of our Jeff-Nominated 2010 Production
Written by Conor McPherson, 
Directed by Siiri Scott

Performed at The Den, 1333 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago

An enigmatic young woman from Dublin finds herself the center of attention at a local pub. Pints in hand, the local barflies recount ghostly yarns of the supernatural to impress and entertain her, but it is the visitor herself who relates the most unsettling story of all.

McPherson wrote this hauntingly beautiful and humorous play at the age of 26, winning the Olivier Award for Best New Play, and the Evening Standard Award for Most Promising Playwright.

Featuring ITC ensemble members Brad Armacost (Jack), Jeff Christian (Jim), Dan Waller (Finbar), and Sarah Wellington (Valerie), with guest artist Brad Smith (Brendan).

The production team includes scenic design by Merje Veski, costume design by Aly Renee Amidei, lighting design by Cat Wilson, sound design by Joe Court, and stage management by Jen Bukovsky.

A Midwest Premiere
Written by Donal O’Kelly, Directed by Jeff Christian
Starring ITC ensemble members Brad Armacost and Jamie Young

Performed at The Den Theatre, 1333 N. Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago

Brad Armacost and Jamie Young play multiple roles in this cloak-and-dagger comedy involving a botched robbery of the Virgin Mary and a secret roll of film that brings together an ex-convict and a nun for a series of escapades in an unforgettable tale of goodness, guilt, and an aching backside.
