Works by Elizabeth Meriwether, José Rivera, Emily Schwartz Set for Steppenwolf's Garage Rep Season
Sideshow Theatre Company's production of Elizabeth Meriweather's Heddatron, directed by Jonathan L. Green, is a revision to Ibsen's Hedda Gabler that imagines that a Michigonian housewife is kidnapped by robots and forced to perform in their version of the play.
In addition, The Strange Tree Group will present Emily Schwartz's The Three Faces of Doctor Crippen, which explores the real-life case of Dr. H.H. Crippen, an Englishman and murderer from the turn of the last century. The third production in the Garage Rep series will be UrbanTheater Company's production of José Rivera's Sonnets for an Old Century. Set in a waiting room of the afterlife, the dream-like play will be directed by Madrid St. Angelo, in collaboration with Juan Castañeda and Ivan Vega.
