The Way West
Friday, May 15, through Sunday, May 24
The final production in New Ground Theatre's 2014-15 season is author Mona Mansour's The Way West, which runs at the Village Theatre May 15 through 24. The Chicago Tribute wrote that Mansour's 2013 play "captures how fast technology reveals the skeletons in our closet." The Windy City Times called it an exploration of how "poor judgment can squander millions in stocks or pennies in a jam jar."
New Ground director Christina Myatt, however, has her own description: "Family dysfunction, old boyfriends, bad business schemes, financial distress ... . You know, a lot of comedy." And she's not being sarcastic.
