Chicago’s Halcyon Theatre has announced casting for the U.S. Premiere of DIRTY BUTTERFLY by Debbie Tucker Green, a co-production with Chicago’s The Blind Owl.
Directed by The Blind Owl’s Artistic Director Azar Kazemi, the production features Leah Raidt, Reginald Robinson Jr. and Genevieve VenJohnson. Understudies include Charlee Cotton and Eleni Sauvageau.
DIRTY BUTTERFLY follows Jason and Amelia as they continue to learn about Jo, their mutual neighbors’ dark and compelling world. Through paper thin walls, fragments of all three lives come to light causing a blur of voyeuristic confessions and confrontations of the violence they cannot escape.
DIRTY BUTTERFLY runs November 3-December 10, 2016 at Halcyon Theatre, located in residence at Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church, 3253 W. Wilson Avenue, on Chicago’s north side. Tickets are $20 for guaranteed advance admission or at no-cost through the Radical Hospitality program.
