Lettie by Boo Killebrew Followed by Storycatchers

Sunday, April 29 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Members – $22 guests $27. The reservation deadline for this program has now passed. Should tickets become available, you may  be added to the wait list by calling the Village office at 773.248.8700.

The long-lasting effects of the criminal justice systems on American citizens is the timely focus for this unique play. After serving seven years in prison, Lettie is released and struggles to make a fresh start. Her children, who have been cared for by her half-sister, want little to do with her. Her re-entry job is anything but gentle as she takes on the dark, harsh world of welding. Immediately following this performance of Lettie, you are invited to stay for a half-hour public program about the work of Storycatchers Theatre, an award-winning Chicago nonprofit that works with teens and young adults who are detained, incarcerated, or navigating reentry, to turn their personal stories into powerful musical theatre.
