The Goodman Theatre has announced the three productions that will be presented as part of its "New Stages Amplified" series, which features never-before-seen works in modestly-scaled developmental productions presented in the Owen Theatre, October 13-November 20.

Dartmoor Prison by Carlyle Brown, directed by Chay Yew (October 13 - 23) is a journey into Britain's most notorious holding pen for prisoners of war and domestic criminals during the War of 1812, including "King Dick"--an African American sailor whose life at sea has provided him with remarkable personal freedom at a time when millions of enslaved Africans are still held in bondage.

Chicago Boys by Kathleen Tolan, directed by Ann Filmer (October 27 - November 6) is set in the 1970s in Chicago and Santiago, Chile, and tells the story of Joe, a young American economist who travels to Chile to promote freemarket economics. But when a coup erupts and political power shifts, he quickly finds that theory and practice collide in a very messy world.

Ask Aunt Susan by Seth Bockley, directed by Joanie Schultz (November 10 - 20) is a new comedy about a 20-something man who moonlights as Aunt Susan, an online guru offering advice to women on everything from boyfriends to back problems.
