The Shows


"Failure: A Love Story" 
by Philip Dawkins
Directed by Brian Rickel

May 11 and 18 at 2:00pm

It is 1928 and the jazz era is in full swing while life in Chicago is roaring.  By the end of the year, all three Fail sisters will meet their demise.  In reverse order of age Nelly Fail, Jenny June Fail and Gertie Fail will die of a blunt object to the head, a disappearance and finally…consumption.  Living out their daily lives above the family clock shop on the Chicago River, they meet Mortimer Mortimer, who will fall madly in love with all three sisters.  Chasing time toward the inevitable, the power of love wins out over success and failure in this magic fable filled with whimsy, music and an irreverent chorus sure to ignite the heart and the imagination.

With the exception of our tour shows, we rehearse Monday-Friday from 6:30-9:30 PM until we get to tech rehearsals and performance.  Technical rehearsal begin the Wednesday or Thursday prior to opening.  At that point Saturdays are added to the schedule until the close of the performance.
