American Theater Company celebrates its 25th Anniversary with The Silver Project, a year-long festival of 30 world premiere short plays penned by some of the country's leading playwrights. Artistic Director PJ Paparelli asked over 30 playwrights across the country to choose a year between 1985 and 2010 and write a short play that explores the company's mission: what does it mean to be an American. Directed and performed by over 50 Chicago artists, the plays will be presented in five parts throughout the year and as a complete cycle during the National Theatre Communications Group Conference June 16-20, 2010 in Chicago.
The Silver Project will be performed in five parts:
Part 1: Monday, February 8, 2010 at 7:30pm
Part 2: Monday, March 1 at 7:30pm
Part 3: Monday, May 24 at 7:30pm
Part 4: Tuesday, June 1 at 7:30pm
Part 5: Monday, June 7 at 7:30pm
The Full Cycle (1985-2010): Wednesday, June 16 - 20 at 9pm each night.
