After two and a half years together, Chicago playwright Adam Mace leaves his partner Tom (an actor in his theatre company) to marry Thalia, his best friend, star of his plays, and soon-to-be mother. Soon after the wedding, Thalia and the baby die under mysterious circumstances. When Tom is cast in Adam's new play, Wedding Song, he quickly learns that art is imitating life and that the death of Adam's wife and child may have been no accident. As the play-within-a-play unfolds on stage, everyone's secrets come to light, but the biggest question of all remains until the final act.
Steeped in mystery, love, humor, and betrayal, this world premiere by About Face Artistic Director Eric Rosen takes audiences on a journey from the dusty lobbies of Chicago's storefront theatres to the noir-ish underworld of 1930s Cairo as the cast of Wedding Song searches for the answer to one question: Did he kill her?
