Please join us as we sample some of Chicago's best theatrical experiences! Members of Let's Play attend performances of four plays presented in local mainstream and storefront theatres, perhaps with an emphasis on the smaller venues. All locales are accessible by public transportation and/or with convenient parking. Participants should purchase the scripts online (unless a pdf is available), as before the shows we will read the scripts aloud in class. After attending each performance, we will discuss the play. Group members may volunteer to introduce the plays and playwrights, organize the parts to be read, and lead the discussions. Additionally, we may complement these discussions with guest speakers and film clips. There also is the option to join in pre-play group dining at a nearby restaurant. Tickets will be pre-purchased by the coordinators at a reduced rate; participants should arrive at our first class with cash or a check, as some theaters need to be paid at once in order to secure our seats.
