In my December retrospective about the amazing decade Chicago theater had just completed, I lamented the relative paucity of an international component to Chicago’s theater offerings. No sooner had I written such than I was asked to MC one of the events in the inaugural outing of the International Voices Project. I’ll be doing so tonight, when Trap Door’s Max Truax directs a staged reading of a French play, written by the Romanian Matei Visniec, WHAT SHALL WE DO WITH THE CELLO? It’s a fun one-act, with some nice existential elements that should make for a lively conversation. And it’s free. Come out and support this great new project, and get your catcalls in at the discussion host while your at it. Here’s the flyer copy:
