Loopshop 6: Mitera, or A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Funeral
Today we get a peek into Mitera:
Three single sisters have their lives turned upside down when they find out their mother is still micromanaging their lives from beyond the grave. Mitera, written by Strangeloop company member Maria Burnham, pokes and prods the boundaries of family loyalty and examines the idea that sometimes the people we’ve known our entire lives are the people we know the least. Directed by Elana Elyce, Mitera stars Allison McCorkle as Olga, Stella Martin as Nitsa and Cyra K. Polizzi as Dimitra.
Loopshop is Chicago-based Strangeloop Theatre's annual short play and new works series. This year's production features a mix of short, original plays and scenes from full scripts in development — all from local playwrights.
Performances for Loopshop 6 will be at 8 p.m. on Monday, July 29, and Tuesday, July 30, 2013, at Chemically Imbalanced Comedy Theatre, 1422 West Irving Park Road, Chicago. Tickets for the show are $10.
