Jackalope has announced the cast and design team for its season closer, the world premiere of “Life On Paper,” written by Kenneth Lin, directed by Gus Menary.

The cast features Joel Ewing (Mitch), Mary Williamson (Ida), Guy Wicke (Ivan), Josh Odor (Michael), and Satya Jnani Chavez (Maggie).

The production team includes Ryan Emens (scenic designer), Stefani Azores-Gococo (costume designer), Claire Sangster (lighting designer),
Mara Zinky (props designer), Steve LaBedz (sound designer), Dan Machalinski (technical director), Monet Felton (assistant director), Danielle Stack (production manager), Catherine Miller (casting director), and Jackie Marschke (stage manager).

After his proof for the Riemanm Hypothesis (one of the world’s last great math puzzles) disastrously flames out, Mitch Bloom, a brilliant mathematician finds himself working as a consultant using complex algorithms to set the value of human lives in wrongful death cases. His knack for de-valuing lives has made him the darling of the insurance companies, but what will he do when the wrongful death of a billionaire philanthropist crosses his desk, and the future of a small town hangs in the balance?

“Life On Paper” runs May 21 – June 22, at Broadway Armory Park, 5917 N Broadway in Chicago. For more information visit www.jackalopetheatre.org.
