|A former member||
Hi! My name is Jenn Adams, and I am Associate Artistic Director of Halcyon Theatre.
Halcyon Theatre is presenting a new play called Trickster that we think would be really exciting for people who love Dungeons and Dragons, Lord of the Rings, and other Epic-style fantasy. We would like to offer discounted tickets of $12 this Thursday through Sunday to anyone who uses the password “Gamers.” Is this something you would be willing to advertise to your patrons? Below is more information.
Coyote was supposed to clear the world of monsters but disappeared along the way. Humans live as puppets in a wasteland ruled by Wolf, torn between soldiers and the spiritual world until the gods return to finish their job.
"Trickster takes place in-between the spirit world and a war ravaged Southwest reminiscent of the dust bowl. The human world of the play is a pretty brutal place--a mixture of the old testament, the southwest during the war on Geronimo and Juárez today. It's bawdy and brutal, beautiful and brokenhearted. There'll be music and sex and fighting and fun. It's a re-imagining of the legends of Don Juan, Coyote tales and the Genesis account of Abraham, Sarah and Hagar. In a lot of ways it uses stories from the past as a mask to talk about today," says Artistic Director and director, Tony Adams.
Performances run Thursdays, Fridays Saturdays at 7:30 and Sundays at 2:30 through February
6, 2010. Tickets are normally $10-20, and are available through the Greenhouse Theater box office at greenhousetheatre.org or 773.404.7336.
Trickster contains adult themes and language, nudity, and violence. Please contact us if you have any questions about the themes or content of this production.
Mission- We are fiercely committed to making the stage as diverse as the city of Chicago; presenting new voices from inadequately represented communities, as well as recasting classic works to showcase their contemporary relevance.
