Heads in Chicago this Summer

June 11 through July 18, 2009:

The Alcyone Festival '09

Playing with the notion that women only write small domestic dramas, this year Halcyon Theater picked a theme as far away from that as possible: terrorism, the cult of martyrdom and its effects upon the innocents. The Alcyone Festival 2009 features six phenomenal writers from across the globe in rotating repertory. For more info:


The Black Eyed by Betty Shamieh
Blessed Child by Astrid Saalbach
Bounty of Lace by Susan Merson
Fucking Parasites by Nina Tersman
Heads by EM Lewis
The Toymaker's War by Jennifer Fawcett

HEADS, by EM Lewis
Directed by Jessica Hutchinson

A British Embassy worker, an American engineer, a network journalist and a freelance photographer are held captive in Iraq; as death draws close, each hostage must decide what he’ll do to survive. *Heads will be a Chicago Premiere
