Lottery Day

September 20 - October 7, 2017 In the Owen
Approximate running time: 2 hours and 30 minutes including one intermission

In his latest play, award-winning Chicago playwright Ike Holter weaves together characters from past works including Exit Strategy and Sender, to create a new story about the cost of belonging and the gift of community.

After an act of violence robbed her of family, Mallory created a new one by opening the doors of her rambling home in a quickly gentrifying neighborhood to a wild array of lonely neighbors, hardcore activists and starving artists. Tonight she is determined to banish the ghosts of her past by throwing a raging party and all of her new family is invited. This is a holiday of her own invention – Lottery Day – and anyone could win but everyone has something to lose.

PERFORMANCES OF LOTTERY DAY ARE SOLD OUT BUT TICKETS MAY BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR.
