Griffin Theatre will make the most of the lingering summer season this weekend — and at the same time gear up enthusiasm for its 25th anniversary season — with a project they’ve dubbed Plays on the Pavement. The company will present concert readings of three plays “under the stars” at 1940 W. Foster, the site of the parking lot of the future Griffin Arts Center, its new “home-in-progress.”
Audiences are encouraged to bring a picnic basket (beer and soft drinks will be sold on site), along with a chair or two, to any or all of the following:
± Friday, Aug. 9: “AND THEN THERE WERE NONE,” Agatha Christie’s famous who-done-it thriller, directed by Scott Weinstein.
± Saturday, Aug. 10: “YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU,” George S. Kaufman’s Pulitzer Prize-winning screwball comedy, directed by Paul Holmquist.
The Pulitzer Prize winning screw ball comedy.
± Sunday, Aug. 11th: “JERUSALEM,” British playwright Jez Butterworth’s raucous and outrageous drama, directed by Robin Witt.
All performances at 8:00 p.m. Suggested donation ticket price is $10 (kids free, though be advised, “Jerusalem” is adult material).
To make your donation and reserve your tickets online call (773) 769-2228, ext. 1. You also can make your donation and reserve your tickets on site in the parking lot on the evening of the performances.
