Up next at the Bartell Theater:

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

The playwright will attend opening-weekend performances of this Wisconsin premiere; watch for announcements of talkbacks throughout the run.

Nine performances on the Bartell’s Evjue Stage:

Friday-Saturday, January 23-24 @ 8:00pm / Thursday, January 29 @ 7:30pm / Friday-Saturday, January 30-31 @ 8:00pm / Sunday, February 1 @ 2:00pm / Thursday, February 5 @ 7:30pm / Friday-Saturday, February 6-7 @ 8pm
