The Artist Needs a Wife

A World Premiere
by Jesse Weaver

directed by
Carolyn Klein

January 15 -
February 14, 2010

A derelict basement apartment. Decades. In the future. Mott's DJ career - and his spunk - have turned to dust. Freud hasn't been able to paint for 73 (Or is it 23? 95?) years. Maybe it's time for a new fucking muse.

Now.

What to do with the old one?

"Intense, intriguing and deeply introspective ... Weaver is [a writer] with considerable promise" - Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

"[a] sometimes hilarious, sometimes repugnant symphony of squalor" - Kerry Reid, Chicago Reader
