About this show

A Palestinian-American woman meets a jaded vet in a fleabag Kentucky hotel. Two soldiers try to survive a war and become much more than bunkmates. A pair of spirits chase one another across the empty caverns of space and time. Written during the first Gulf War as a reflection on a generation of American imperialism, Naomi Wallace's intense and poetic 1994 classic pulls together five castoff souls to examine the shattering effects of war and creates a collage of love, pain, horror, heartbreak and hope at the pulsing heart of America. In the Heart of America will run Thursdays - Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. - To purchase tickets, or for more information on dates and run times, call (773) 404-7336 or visit All press inquiries should be directed to 773-853-3158.
