In the Owen Theatre

  • Lady in Denmark

    By Dael Orlandersmith
    Directed by Chay Yew

    After the death of her husband, a Danish American woman living in Chicago finds solace in the hauntingly beautiful music of the couple’s favorite singer, Billie Holiday.

  • Twilight Bowl

    By Rebecca Gilman
    Directed by Erica Weiss

    After graduating from a small Wisconsin high school, Sam heads to college on scholarship—but her cousin Jaycee’s future isn’t looking as bright. As the young women and their friends face adulthood, their local bowling alley becomes a place to celebrate triumphs, confront challenges and perhaps even forge new identities. 

  • Lottery Day

    By Ike Holter
    Directed by Lili-Anne Brown

    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. Her mysterious plan to revitalize her community, however, may just be the very thing that tears it apart.
