A World Premiere!
Written by Laura Jacqmin
Directed by Megan Shuchman, Associate Director of Education at Steppenwolf
Featuring Brendan Meyer, Lily Mojekwu, and Brenann Stacker
April 2 – May 16, 2015
Those who die young are mourned for their lost potential. But Mike, a high school hockey player who gets drunk and crashes his car before the play begins, did not show much potential. As they learn to grieve, his mother Alice, his AP English teacher Leticia, and Caylee (who had a crush on Mike for years), try to learn who Mike truly was and who he might have become. The three women realize that the day-to-day moments they missed or ignored may show they were wrong about their initial feelings toward Mike.

WOMEN AT WAR Tour | coming in 2015
After a hugely successful run at our theatre, WOMEN AT WAR will embark on a Chicagoland Tour in 2015. Watch for more details coming soon about how you or your group can hire WOMEN AT WAR to come to your venue!
A debate rages over whether females should serve on the frontlines, yet more women are being sent into active combat zones than ever before. This new theatrical work is woven from years of research and first-person interviews with women who have laid their lives on these lines and returned from deployment to re-enter civilian life.
