2019-01-24 19:30:002019-01-24 19:30:00America/ChicagoThe FatherDirected by Ellen Fenster.  Featuring Craig Johnson and Miriam Schwartz with Peter Christian Hansen, Olivia Wilusz, Emily Grodzik and Matt Wall. “THE FATHER is one of those plays that makes your brain hum with the potential of theatre” – The Independent André is now an old man but still a man of his own mind. He’s quick with a joke, especially one with an edge, and used to dominating conversations and relationships. But things are getting strange: His trusted watch goes missing, reappears, and is lost again. His daughter’s stories don’t quite add up. His furniture is disappearing and there are strangers at his table. This internationally acclaimed and theatrically thrilling exploration examines who we are to ourselves when our signposts disappear. “…hugely rewarding… [THE FATHER] constantly makes you question the truth and the nature of reality…an astonishingly unguarded play about the cruelties of love and the limits of patience, and the way child-parent relationships become inverted as old age creeps up and mugs us.” —The Guardian (UK).
