About This Show

Factory Theater presents the world premiere of The Willing Participant, a dark comedy written by Matt O’Neill, and directed by Steve Walker.

A cop. An investigation. An affair. An abduction.

Ray Shepard, a Chicago police officer, is being questioned for the death of Jim Farzo. Complicating matters is his romantic entanglement with Annette Farzo, Jim’s sister. Meanwhile, an insane dispute within Ray’s condo association escalates to astronomical proportions. When in the midst of all this aliens from a far-off galaxy abduct Ray, thrusting him into the middle of their civil war, causing worlds to collide.

Special Gala Benefit performance Saturday February 18 at 8pm. Tickets are $40.00 (includes food & drink at post show reception).
