FACING ANGELA coming soon

Rehearsals are underway for FACING ANGELA.  Here’s a teaser image:

Facing Angela (355 of 462)

This will be the second process in a row for me that going into it almost doesn’t feel like a new play, because ANGELA has been with me for so long (BREWED was that way too).  But it most certainly is a new play, and I can’t wait to see where Kyra and our insane cast take ANGELA in her new incarnation.  Tickets go on sale May 27!

FACING ANGELA

by Scott T. Barsotti

directed by Kyra Lewandowski

June 29 – July 28

No show July 4; industry performance Monday, July 8

Athenaeum Theatre, 2936 N Southport, Chicago

Angela has lost her face.  Acquiring a new face alters more than skin and tissue, cutting into Angela’s relationship with her husband, Wes, and mutating her sense of self.  As Angela re-constructs, re-invents, and re-defines her identity, Wes ceases to recognize the woman he loves, and doubts whether he really knows himself either.  This re-imagining of my 2003 play (my first ever professionally produced), challenges how we recognize ourselves and those we go to bed with, and the collateral damage of transformative change.
