The side project theatre company will present the world premiere of Laura Eason's Rewind as the first production of its 9th season. The production is the next in a series of successful stagings of Eason's works around the country - including Sex with Strangers, a breakout hit of Steppenwolf's 2009 First Look Repertory series - and the collaboration marks the beginning of a new era for the Rogers Park-based theatre company.
The story of three friends and musicians knocked about by the caprices of the music industry (and each other), Rewind is partly a "time capsule" for Eason, who (along with fellow Lookingglass Theatre ensemble member Joy Gregory) played at venues including the Metro, the Double Door and the now-defunct Lounge Act and recorded tracks for Sweet Pea Records as bass player for Chicago indie rock act Tart. Rewind is also a personal exploration - told in reverse chronological order - of the dark side of success, inspired by the private struggles and often public self-destruction of some of her musical idols.
