The Gift Theatre is welcoming back live audiences with the Chicago premiere of Naomi Iizuka's drama At the Vanishing Point, directed by Lavina Jadhwani.
It runs through Sunday, May 22, at Filament Theatre, 4041 N. Milwaukee Ave.
According to a press release, "How do we remember a part of our history at the moment that it's slipping away? How do we give voice to the ghosts that haunt us as individuals and as a community? This stunning portrait of a community weaves together historical fact, myth and memory to give voice to people who would otherwise exist only as faded images in an old photo album."
The cast includes ensemble members Paul D'Addario, Jennifer Glasse and Kenny Mihlfried, with guest artists Nico Fernandez, Paula Hlava, Kieran Jethmalani, Tricia Rodriguez, Dwight Sora, Watson Swift and Raquel Torre. Understudies include Al Hermann, Huy Nguyen, Sierra Phan and Risha Tenae.
Tickets ($40-$50 each) are currently available at www.thegifttheatre.org or 773-283-7071.
