November 21 7:00 pm Welcome to Matteson! Passage Theatre live online play reading

Written by Inda Craig-Galván and directed by Andrew Binger, the play involves “a suburban couple hosting a welcome-to-the-neighborhood dinner party for their new neighbors — a couple recently (forcibly) relocated from Chicago’s roughest housing project — and it’s anything but welcoming. A dark intra-racial comedy about reverse gentrification and how we deal with the “other” when the other looks just like us.” A recording of the live performance will be available from 12:01am on Sunday, November 22 until 11:59pm on November 24. Click here to buy a ticket, $10 per attendee. At the interview with Inda Craig-Galván, she will share her process for creating this compelling theatrical piece premiering on November 11.
