The Hairy Ape
Tickets and Information
Opened Feb 7, 2009
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In a premiere commissioned by the Goodman, the Chicago-based company The Hypocrites will transform the Owen into an ocean liner for their mesmerizing production of The Hairy Ape. The actors will perform from the floor and balconies, while the audience will be seated onstage to watch this astonishing story of Yank--a laborer on an ocean liner--who is rejected as a "filthy beast" by both the bourgeois of New York's Fifth Avenue and his fellow working men. In his dejection, Yank determines that he would rather find solace in the crushing embrace of a gorilla than live a lonely, desperate life.
