boys & girls

Theatre Seven's production of Boys & Girls is on the boards. It's two one act plays: Never Swim Alone by Daniel MacIvor and The Shallow End by Wendy MacLeod. It's a sharp production -- even the Trib thinks so -- but dang if you shouldn't see it for yourselves. The MacIvor script is one of my favorite scripts on my short list of favorites. We're producing it downtown in the Studio Theatre at the Chicago Cultural Center. Rebecca, one of the actors (pictured), exits the theatre at the end of the play, and has to trek through the Cultural Center in her swimsuit to get backstage again. A group of ladies saw her go by and asked if the Chicago Cultural Center had a swimming pool. Theatre Seven: tricking people into thinking the Chicago Cultural Center has a swimming pool since 2008.
