Failure: A Love Story by Philip Dawkins
Tickets on sale September 3, 2013 at 8am
Our first production of the season is Failure: A Love Story by Philip Dawkins, a magical, musical fable about the triumphs and aspirations of three sisters living in the rickety two-story building by the Chicago River (the Fail family home and clock shop) in 1928. Nelly was the first to die, followed soon after by sisters, Jenny June and Gerty. As with many unforeseen circumstances in life—blunt objects, disappearances and consumption—they never saw death coming. This profoundly funny and moving offering reminds us that in the end, all that remains is love. Said Hedy Weiss of the Chicago Sun Times of the Chicago production: “A wholly wonderful show that is profound, yet at the very same time whimsical beyond all imagining — a show in which time is of the essence, and in which love and death (especially death that comes suddenly and prematurely) conjoin in the strangest yet most beautiful of waltzes.” Running October 10th through the 26th at the Dairy Center for the Arts, and directed by Amanda Berg Wilson.
