Paint the Town Orange

Siberian Mouth - Bruised Orange Theater Company - The Side Project (1439 W. Jarvis) - A Play by Chris Bower

The latest play from Chicago's Chris Bower has been receiving a lot of positive buzz and recently received 4 stars from Time Out Chicago. Since my recent interview with Megan Mercier I have been more aware of the price and quality of Chicago theater, and at only $10 you really can't go wrong.

Here is the blurb, "A whimsical two-handed riff on Fyodor Dostoevsky's short story, White Nights. The Siberian tundra, a disappearing fiancé, the czar's bizarre taste for imperiled animal hybrids, and a shared ferocious independence hinder a would-be couple in their search to discover a cure for shared loneliness. Siberian Mouth marks BOTC's fourth Studio effort, and kicks off our International Cycle, dedicated to mining Dostoevsky's rich oeuvre in order to create equally rich and expansive live drama."

The play runs through Dec. 9th and you can catch the play this Sunday, Monday or Tuesday. Don't miss it! You can also revisit my interview with Chris.
