Oppidian Theatrical’s resident playwright, Jennifer Biddle, returns to Chicago for a one-night engagement. Jennifer will be at the Prop Theater at 2PM on Sunday the 28th of February. Ms. Biddle has teamed up with Curious Theatre Branch to be part of The Church of the New Play a weekly series curated by the Rhinofest. The Church of the New Play is dedicated to new and emerging voices in theater and performance. The Rhinofest has decided to perform a stage reading of Ms. Biddle’s work Little Man and His Wife.
Peter is a little person with some outrageous responsibilities, including getting his siblings together for the reading of their estranged father’s will. His sister Evee is also little, needing succor and a viable kidney; Randall is normal sized and needs Peter to explain his own wife’s anger to him. But first he has to coax his d
elusional love from the closet where she sits with some denizens out of her private world. In fact, they’d like a word with him….
Peter could rise to the occasion—or he could grab his wife’s hand and scram, running to the place she normally strolls….
Please join Ms. Biddle at Prop Theater, 3502 N. Elston Ave, for The Church of the New Play at 2pm on February 28th.
Tickets are $15 at the door, or pay what you can, or $12 in advance. Coffee, doughnuts and discussion will follow the performance.
