From the press release: “The group of college friends who started Red Bowl Ensemble have been plugging away in the storefront theater scene for years, but now they’ve finally made it: to the Non-Equity Joseph Jefferson Awards, that is. Loosely inspired by Anton Chekov’s Three Sisters, “Red Bowl at the Jeffs” is a bittersweet comedy about a group of young artists dealing with ambition, failure, friendship, and making it to Moscow.”
“Beth’s play is a love letter to Chicago’s theatre scene, but it’s about a lot more than that, too,” said director Rebecca Willingham. “Its themes—how we define success, choosing a safe path or a risk, and how our relationships affect our personal growth—are universal, and the play deals with them in a way that’s fresh, funny, and current.”
RED BOWL AT THE JEFFS runs March 30th – April 21st. For more information visit thesoundchicago.com.
