White Rabbit Red Rabbit

White Rabbit Red Rabbit is a worldwide phenomenon that was first produced in 2011. The contemporary play is unique in that there is no set, no costumes, no rehearsal, and no director. Ten actors will take on performing the show, one at each performance. The actors do not see the script until they perform it, creating a once in a lifetime performance. “This wildly entertaining and thought-provoking theatrical piece – where no audience can see the same show twice – blends drama, comedy and social experiment,” describe earlier production notes.Read more

A Steady Rain

by Keith Huff, Directed by Malinda L. Beckham

A Steady Rain explores the complexities of a lifelong bond tainted by domestic affairs, violence, and the rough streets of Chicago. Joey and Denny have been best friends since kindergarten and, after working together for several years as policemen in Chicago, they are practically family: Joey helps out with Denny's wife and kids; Denny keeps Joey away from the bottle. But when a domestic disturbance call takes a turn for the worse, their friendship is put on the line. The result is a harrowing journey into a moral gray area where trust and loyalty struggle for survival. Who will be the last man standing?

Originally staged in 2016 as the opening production in its inaugural season, Dirt Dogs Theatre Co. restages the gritty Chicago drama with an updated score composed by cinematic pop musician and performer, Hescher.Read more

Clybourne Park

by Bruce Norris, Directed by Ron Jones

An homage to Lorraine Hansberry’s 1959 play, A Raisin in the Sun, Clybourne Park examines the evolution of a Chicago neighborhood over a 50-year time span. 

Act One takes place in 1959, as white community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a Black family. Act Two is set in the same house in 2009, as the now predominantly Black neighborhood faces gentrification. With the same cast appearing in both acts, Clybourne Park examines how people and places evolve over time and play different roles in society’s progress—or the hindrance thereof.Read more
