“Black n Blue Boys/Broken Men”
Friday, October 26, 8 p.m. at the Goodman Theater, Chicago
In an arresting one-woman show, Pulitzer Prize finalist Dael Orlandersmith seamlessly transforms into five unforgettable male characters whose outward dissimilarities belie their inescapable link: a traumatic past plagued by a cycle of violence and abuse. Taking us from Coney Island to Manchester, England, and back, Ms. Orlandersmith brings to life a series of harrowing stories that weave together each character's friends, family, lovers, and counselors into an explosive narrative that uncovers the darkest corners of humanity—and shatters our notions about predators and their victims. At once powerful and heartbreakingly poetic, “Black ‘n Blue Boys/Broken Men” will leave you breathless.
Ticket Price: $20 per person (tickets and show details will be mailed to you in advance of Homecoming weekend)
