Otherworld Theatre has announced the cast and production team for the Midwest premiere of ALL I WANT IS ONE MORE MEANWHILE… a superhero comedy written by Kelly Jean Fitzsimmons and directed by ensemble member Nathan Pease.
The production is the company’s first in its newly acquired theater location at 3914 N. Clark Street, and will feature company members Elizabeth MacDougald as Jane/Perfectra, Gaby Fernandez as Adara, and Dylan Schaefer as Canius, with guest artists Rodrigo Arreola as Betzler and Michael Dwiggins as Justin/The Crimson Go.
The production team includes company members David Goodman-Edberg (lighting designer), Sara Robinson (assistant director) and Kai Young (Resident Fight Director) with guest artists Magdalene Brenner (costume designer), Dylan Crow (assistant stage manager), Katy Crow (stage manager), Grace DeSant (dance choreographer) Robert Hornbostel (music composer/sound designer), and Hayden Penn (scenic designer).
“We expect women to be perfect, but what does that mean in a world where that definition changes minute to minute, person to person? Every woman would have to be a superhero to keep up with that kind of demand,” comments Pease. “ONE MORE MEANWHILE is a sly look at what it is society is really asking of women and how ridiculous it all is. It challenges toxic fandom the concepts of modern femininity while telling a story with a heroic amount of heart and humor,”
Performances begin September 26 and run through October 27, 2018. All mainstage tickets are pay-what-you-can with a $20 suggested ticket price. For more information visit OtherworldTheatre.org.
