About this show

Vigils, by Noah Haidle, is a surprisingly funny and wildly imaginative story of love, grief and the difficulty of letting go. Two years after a fireman died trying to save a baby from a burning home, his widow is clinging to the past -- literally. She has trapped her husband's soul in a box, and his body is wandering around aimlessly, ricocheting from one memory to the next, as body and soul try to come to terms with their actions during his life. When a handsome wooer arrives on the scene, the widow must decide between the past she knows and the future she can only imagine. Kate Whoriskey directs this world premiere. Groups of 10 or more should call 312-443-3820 to arrange for a group rate.
