Lottery Day

Mar 29 - Apr 28, 2019 In the Owen

Not everyone will go home a winner.

“Thrilling Chicago writer” (Chicago Tribune) Ike Holter concludes his acclaimed seven-play “Rightlynd Saga” by assembling his vibrant characters for a raucous theatrical bash. Long the matriarch of a quickly gentrifying neighborhood, Mallory invites the lonely residents, hardcore activists and starving artists of her block to what she hopes will go down as a legendary barbeque—thanks to a special surprise. But her mysterious plan to revitalize the community may be the very thing that tears it apart.

Centering on a fictitious Chicago ward, “The Rightlynd Saga” includes seven plays: Red Rex (on stage through March 16 at Steep Theatre), Rightlynd, Exit Strategy, Sender, Prowess, The Wolf at the End of the Block and his final work, Lottery Day.
