About Face Theatre and Art AIDS America are proud to present a staged reading of IN THE CONTINUUM, by Danai Gurira and Nikkole Salter, the third in our “AIDS on Stage” series at Alphawood Gallery on Fullerton and Halsted. Admission is FREE, doors open at 6pm, and the event begins at 7.

This play puts a human face on the devastating impact of AIDS in Africa and America through the lives of two unforgettably courageous women. Living worlds apart, one in South Central LA and the other in Zimbabwe, each experience a kaleidoscopic weekend of life changing revelations in this story of parallel denials and self-discoveries.

“AIDS on Stage” is a series of readings presented by About Face Theatre and the groundbreaking Art AIDS America exhibition. Four readings from HIV/AIDS focused plays provide a chronological, retrospective look at how theatre artists have addressed the devastating health crisis throughout the decades. The readings will take place every Monday in March at 7PM at Alphawood Gallery on the corner of Fullerton and Halsted. Doors open at 6pm to provide attendees an opportunity to experience the exhibit as well.

Created by Leah Urzendowski & Anthony Courser
Directed by Adrian Danzig
April 6 – May 13
Thurs/Fri/Sat at 7:30pm

***The? Unicorn? Hour? invites you into a space to discover and grow joy in an atmosphere where joy can float freely. Inspired by childhood favorites “Mr. Rogers Neighborhood” and “Peewee’s Playhouse”, this show claims joy as the core fantastical world of adventure within us. Joy is an active choice, requiring a shift of perception of the world around you. The? Unicorn? Hour? refers to the unicorn that lives within all of us – the mythical magical organ in your soul that can be tapped into at any moment you choose. You can “unicorn” at anytime! Seeking joy is refusing woe and accepting the beauty of an unbridled lifting of the spirit.***

UT / TAPS and Dean’s Men present: Henry VI

March 02, 2017 at Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=xYwMu9RQkgdldPUJkJA7PQ

It’s the War of the Roses unlike ever before: within the confines of a classroom, schoolyard rules and storied rulers will be tested. Witness history conjured up—a chalkboard sketches the royal lineage and counts the dead, yardsticks stand for swords, paper airplanes and ink for arrows and blood, as the noble Houses of York and Lancaster renew their bitter struggle for the Crown of England. The text of Shakespeare will temper students and kings as they wonder: will chaos or convention reign at battle’s end?

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Laura Bevington
