Thursday, June 12 at 9:00 PM
Co-Prosperity Sphere (3219 S Morgan St.)
Two new short plays investigate communication breakdowns, things that look like the apocalypse, and the dark side of art galleries. The performances are designed to bring theater into nontraditional venues, embracing all things odd, DIY, and unaffiliated.
The night begins with a performance by ROOMS, a Chicago trio known for moody, evocative improvised music. (ROOMS is: Dan Pierson, piano. Charlie Kirchen, bass. Matt Carroll, drums.)
