Red Theater Chicago has announced two upcoming workshops: THE ISLE OF SUGAR, a hybrid play written and directed by Jeff nominee Alejandro Tey, and THOSE EYES WHO SAW DEATH by Wendy-Marie Martin.
The Isle of Sugar (workshop) from the mind of Alejandro Tey (Jeff Nominated, Chad Deity) comes an immersive theater-game hybrid. Choices must be made as dramatic scenes play out, inciting a cascade of consequences that affect not only the plot, but your fellow theater-goers. What or who will you be willing to out or abandon to stay alive?
Those Eyes Who Saw Death (workshop) is a new play by Wendy-Marie Martin. Trapped in a world she doesn't seem able to escape; Mae learns that only she can free herself.
