Chicago Dramatists' next new work includes the world premiere of Resident Playwright Mia McCullough's Lucinda's Bed.
Lucinda is nine years old, and all she wants is to be good, but when the Monster under her bed introduces himself one night, Lucinda finds out that staying good will be harder than she thinks. Even when she's grown and married, the Monster continues to turn up in the most peculiar places at the most awkward and inopportune moments with perfect timing and panache, to make sure she is not. McCullough takes us to the many beds of Lucinda's life. From twin to queen, the playwright explores the need to be good and the temptation not to be, navigating growing up, growing old and the monsters that grow with us.
