Lake Como in Rome is set to present the Chicago premiere of Bernard-Marie Koltès' Night Just Before the Forest, to run May 17-June 16 at The Viaduct Theater. Elisabeth Barnick will direct.

Staring Kevin V. Smith, Night Just Before the Forest is a one-man show poetically chronicling the exploits of an unnamed narrator as he grapples with urban alienation and searches for a You, following no direct path. The narrator winds his way through his memory as he tries to find a space for two people with no roles.

The creative team behind Lake Como in Rome, which includes Elisabeth Barnick, Melissa Lorraine, and Kevin V. Smith, first came together as the result of Theatre Y's 2011 Exiled Trilogy.
