Written and directed by Regina Taylor
May 23 - June 21 in the Owen Theatre 

In stop. reset., e-books and digital technologies are transforming the literary world, and Chicago businessman Alex Ames (Eugene Lee) must try to save his long-standing African American book publishing company from extinction. While his employees Jan (Jacqueline Williams), Chris (Eric Lynch), Deb (Lisa Tejero) and Tim (Tim Decker) fret over losing their jobs, Ames finds unlikely inspiration from a mysterious teenager, J. (Edgar Sanchez), who seems to be plugged into the future. The aging Ames is forced to discover how far he’s willing to go to survive.

stop. reset. made its world premiere in 2013 at Signature Theatre Company in New York, where Taylor is a Residency Five playwright. Her film credits include The Negotiator, Courage Under Fire, A Family Thing, The Keeper, Clockers, Losing Isaiah and Lean on Me. She appeared in the CBS hit drama The Unit, for which she won a NAACP Image Award. Taylor has also received a Hope Abelson Artist-in-Residence Award, 2012 Chicagoan of the Year from Chicago magazine and an Oscar Micheaux Award.

Edelman Worldwide is the Major Corporate sponsor for the Owen Theatre season. Baxter if the contributing sponsor and HSBC North American Holdings is the Opening Night sponsor for stop.reset. The Joyce Foundation is the principal support of Diversity Initiatives.
