Thursdays-Sundays, October 10-26, at 8pm, The Catamounts are thrilled to present the first full-length production of our 2013-14 season, the regional premiere of Failure: A Love Story by Philip Dawkins, directed by Artistic Director Amanda Berg Wilson.

Failure Postcard Front

Set in a clock shop on edge of the Chicago River in 1928, this magical, musical fable follows the triumphs, aspirations, and untimely deaths of the three Fail sisters, and the man who falls in love with all three of them.  Nelly was the first of the Fail girls to die, followed soon after by her sisters, Jenny June and Gerty. As with many unforeseen circumstances in life–blunt objects, disappearances and consumption–they never saw death coming. “Failure” is a profoundly funny and moving offering that reminds us in the end, all that remains is love.

SATURDAY performances include a show-inspired community meal created by RollinGreens food truck and Wild Woods Brewery!  Treat yourself to a total night out by attending one of these awesome performances!

    Hi Amanda!
    It is Imily Wool. Striding Lions worked with my students several years at Willard in Evanston. And many of my friends are still associated with the group. Suzanne Kanter told me about your theater group. She said it is beyond terrific. I am not surprised and very excited for you. She gave me your information. I have a good friend in CO. I will be there this weekend (October 25-27). I hope we can get tickets to Saturdays show. I it is the last show, so it may be tough. I will not be able to be out there for the December FEED but that sounds absolutely wonderful! I hope to catch a spring or summer one.
    Take Care and hope to see you sometime when I am out in there!
