AstonRep Theatre Company announced its full 2016-17 Season, kicking off this fall with its first-ever world premiere – THE BLACK SLOT, Warren Hoffman’s satire about racial politics in the American regional theater, directed by Associate Artistic Director Derek Bertelsen. Next winter, AstonRep presents ELEEMOSYNARY, Lee Blessing’s poignant portrait of three women, co-directed by Bertelsen and Jeremiah Barr. The season concludes next spring with the Tony-nominated drama TIME STANDS STILL by Pulitzer Prize-winner Donald Margulies. THE BLACK SLOT and TIME STANDS STILL will be staged at AstonRep’s artistic home, The Raven Theatre (West Stage), 6157 N. Clark St. in Chicago. The venue for ELEEMOSYNARY is TBD. The 2016-17 season also includes AstonRep’s 7th ANNUAL WRITERS’ SERIES, a festival of workshops from local and regional writers in November at The Den Theatre. Tickets for all productions will go on sale at a later date. For additional information, visit www.astonrep.com.
