Mitera, Strangeloop's spring show, which opens in April.
The team includes: Letitia Guillaud (director), Lisa Uhlig (stage manager), Molly Mason, (costume design), Kate Jordan (dialect coach), Keith Gatchel (production manager) and Brad Gunter (production designer).
Set amongst a small Greek community in the American Deep
South during the months preceding the Supreme Court's landmark decision in the
gay marriage case Obergefell v. Hodges, Mitera tells the story of the Sheridan
sisters who discover their mother, upon her death, has left their entire
inheritance contingent on the youngest sister marrying within a year. If she
fails to do so everything goes to their oldest male cousin in Greece. But the
youngest sister is an unattached romantic who believes in marrying for love.
Mitera runs Thursdays through Saturdays April 7 through
May 14 at 7:30 p.m. The site-specific production takes place at The North
Mansion in Berger Park (6219 N. Sheridan Road, Chicago, IL 60660).
Tickets are $5 for previews and $18 for the regular run
and are available in advance through Brown Paper Tickets.
