What's wrong with nine-year-old Jesse? He can't sit still, he curses, he raps, and you can't get him into—or out of—pajamas. His teacher thinks it's Attention Deficit Disorder. Dad says, "He's just a boy!" And Mama's on a quest for answers. Is Jesse dysfunctional, or just different? Everyone is distracted, even the actors—they're breaking character! A hilarious, provocative, and poignant look at a modern family and an epidemic dilemma: Are we so tuned into our 24/7 info-rich world that we've tuned out what really matters?

Tardif, this madcap two person show will be appearing October 6-15th. The show will be running Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, and Sundays at 3pm. Tickets cost $15.
With Blood, With Ink
Described as “…an engrossing theater piece that is brilliantly executed by composer and librettist,” With Blood, With Ink makes its Chicago debut. Third Eye Theatre Ensemble presents Daniel Crozier’s hauntingly beautiful opera about the life of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz — the iconic 17th century Mexican poetess and nun. In this critically acclaimed opera, we walk alongside Sor Juana as she explores her story from her deathbed, reflects on her life's search for truth, struggles against societal expectations, and wrestles with her own faith. Seating is limited.
