Theater Thursday: Caffeine Theatre’s ‘Tallgrass Gothic’

Thursday, March 19

Tallgrass Gothic   by Melanie Marnich

Caffeine Theatre, 6157 N. Clark St., Chicago

Tallgrass Gothic, produced by Caffeine Theatre CompanyEnjoy grub (including buffalo burritos provided by Heartland Cafe) and beer at Champion’s Saloon (6156 N. Clark St.) across the street from the theater before seeing Caffeine Theatre’s latest play Tallgrass Gothic. Inspired by the Jacobean tragedy The Changeling, Melanie Marnich weaves from desire, fear, and longing a starkly beautiful prairie ghost story. A young woman’s hunger for new beginning sets off a chain of violence that unravels her small town. Following the performance, join artists from both Tallgrass Gothic and its repertory partner The Changeling for a look into the process of repertory and of working with adaptation.
Event begins at Champion’s at 7 p.m.
Show begins at 8:30 p.m.
