GreyZelda Announces 2008 Season

Hello, friends -

Here it is!!!!

The third show will probably be The Mystery of Irma Vep or an original piece written by a new playwright. We've yet to decide for sure. So, if you're a playwright and you'd like to submit a play for consideration, please let us know!

GreyZelda Announces 2008 Season


CHICAGO - The GreyZelda Theatre Group, NFP would like to formally announce our 2008 season that we look forward to sharing with Chicagoland audiences. The season will revolve around collaborations with multi-media artists nationwide and will continue GreyZelda's commitment to great literature and experimentation.

A View from the Bridge
by Arthur Miller
January 3 - Feb 2, 2008
Stage Left Theatre
Directed by Chris Riter

A View from the Bridge tells the story of Eddie Carbone, a Brooklyn longshoreman, whose desire for his adult niece leads to disaster in his community and home. GreyZelda will work with a New York filmmaker to move Miller's play into our new millenium, giving the work a fresh spin and making it immediately recognizable to audiences becoming more and more obsessed with the media's parasitic view of tragedies.

The Skriker
by Caryl Churchill
Spring 2008
Directed by Rebecca Zellar

The play tells the story of the Skriker, "a shapeshifter and death portent", as it pursues and stalks two young women in London. Churchill's text is rich, moving and made for those who love difficult and challenging works. This will be Zellar's second time directing the piece and she will be incorporating the talents of dancers, gymnasts, aerial artists, etc to create an underworld seeping into the present day.

Third Show - TBA
Fall/Winter 2008
