Tupperware: An American Musical Fable

The New Colony at LaCosta Theatre, 3931 N. Elston, Chicago

Tupperware-No-BG Come to La Costa before the show for delicious and still-fresh leftovers, lemonade, and Gertie Minor’s Famous Peach Dump. Stay for The New Colony‘s world-premiere season closer Tupperware: An American Musical Fable. Participate in a Q&A with the cast and director. Dolores, a young widow in 1950 longing for her independence, is disrupted from her plans to move from Florida when opportunity knocks at her front door. Literally. Suddenly, Dolores finds herself selling a few hours of independence to the women on her cul de sac in the form of Tupperware. As her success spirals out of control, it gives birth to heated neighborhood politics, the loss of her own freedom to the empire she is helping build, and a movement that changed the face of the American dinner table forever.
Event begins at 6:30 p.m. Show begins at 7:30 p.m.
