WATERSHIP DOWN is OPEN!

And after 2 days of “rest,” we are back at it tonight.  Come check out WATERSHIP DOWN at Lifeline Theatre!

We’re Jeff Recommended, and so far, we’ve gotten some rave reviews, here’s a sampling:

“[T]he intense new dramatic adaptation at the Lifeline Theatre…will greatly please fans of what is surely one of the great fantasy novels of the 20th century.  [T]he heroes here really become Chicago-style rabbits — tough, savvy, direct, in your face, intolerant of elitism and kind and open of heart.”
~ Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune (3-star review)

“Highly imaginative…the 12 actors in the Lifeline cast have winningly captured both the particular personalities and body language of the “creatures” they play. And as ever at this theater, the visual design of the show is splendid.”
~ Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times (Recommended)

“The most rousing adventure story on a Chicago stage at the moment may well involve rabbits. Hildreth’s adaptation of Adams’s 1974 leporine epic skillfully distills the story of Fiver, Hazel and the rest of their ragtag band…the novel’s message of empathy for the nonhuman world remains alarmingly relevant, and its tale of survival against the odds compelling, especially in this well-wrought production.”
~ John Beer, TimeOut Chicago (4-star review)

“Lifeline Theatre’s brilliant production captures the epic sprawl and driving suspense of its source.  Katie McLean Hainsworth’s ace cast…succeed with wit and style. Each cocked head and thumping leg makes a specific, emotionally-resonant contribution to the narrative.”
~ Dan Weissmann, Chicago Reader (Recommended)
