August 24, 2013 @ 8:00 P.M.
1515 West Touhy Ave #1, Chicago, IL 60626
Good ChaI Productions' founder David Ello is relocating to NYC at the end of this month, and as part of the going-away festivities he is presenting 5 of his short plays in workshop form, each written during his last 5 years in Chicago. These five short plays feature a cast of five actors exploring departures of various shapes and sizes, culminating in his most recent work 50 Ways to Say Goodbye.
About the Plays:
UP TO BAT
A rooftop, a grappling hook, and a Batman mannequin...These are what one comic book clerk chooses to raise the stakes on his life. Can his manager save him before he tries to save the day?
Featuring: Aaron Aubrey and Jordan Williams
Is change a threat or an invitation to a better life? Two caterpillars try to convince the other, but both must transform. Who will be the first to fly?
Featuring Whitney Minarik and Rebecca E.G. Hayes
A transplant can be a shock for any rosebush, but what happens when the uprooting is just as difficult for the gardener?
Featuring Aaron Aubrey and Jordan Williams
A man at a crossroads is toying with some tough choices and the help of a special friend. But is decision-making as easy as 1-2...8-Ball?
Featuring Whitney Minarik, Aaron Aubrey, and Rebecca Muszynski
50 WAYS TO SAY GOODBYE
When is goodbye really goodbye? And how many goodbyes does it take before a new hello? Absurdity ensues in this fast-paced, highly physical romp as 5 actors try to find their final farewell.
Featuring Rebecca E.G. Hayes, Rebecca Muszynski, Jordan Williams, and Aaron Aubrey
The Party Will Begin at 7:00. The plays will begin at 8:00 P.M. with more festivities to follow.
