“My colleagues and I fell in love with this script a few years ago, but felt that A-Squared Theatre could not properly stage it with the company’s limited resources,” says A-Squared’s Artistic Director Cary Shoda. “The partnership with Halcyon gives A-Squared Theatre the opportunity to strive for heightened artistic ambitions in producing a play examining universal themes that surpass cultural boundaries.”
AMERICAN HWANGAP runs February 24 through April 1 at Halcyon Theatre located in residence at Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church, 3253 W. Wilson Avenue, on Chicago’s north side. For more information visit halcyontheatre.org
