The Beautiful Dark
Written by Erik Gernand / Directed by Suzan Kurry
January 24 – February 7, 2015
The eldest son of a divorced couple is expelled from college, but no one knows why – until his dark and terrible secret is revealed: Jacob has written a play…about a mass school shooting.
- “This is what it looks like from the inside, when a family is coming apart at the seams.” – Chicago Tribune
- “Mr. Gernand’s timely play is a psychologically manipulative piece of storytelling.” – Showbiz Chicago
- “Gernand ingeniously navigates a world of increasingly murky morality…” – Chicago Reader
