As part of our Discover What's NOW program, we're giving you an all-access pass to the artists involved with the 2017 New Strages Festival! Mingle with the playwrights and directors who are developing the exciting new works presented at the festival at a happy hour event. Then settle into your seat for Lottery Day, the latest play by award-winning Chicago playwright Ike Holter. After the show, you’ll have the rare opportunity to directly offer feedback during a post-show discussion.

In his latest play, award-winning Chicago playwright Ike Holter weaves together characters from past works inluding 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 her family, Mallory created a new one by opening the doros of her rambling home in a quickly gentrifying neighborhood to a wild array of lonely neighbors, hardcore activities 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.
