"One of the most interesting and innovative theatres in Chicago."

WBEZ's 848

Production Detail


the side project is thrilled to announce that director Eric Ziegenhagen and actor Sean Bolger will be taking the show, which premiered on our stage last November, to the New York Fringe Festival! More info on Facebook!

"You start by taking off his blindfold. You do it gently, careful not to jerk his head or neck." So begins this one-man show from Iraq vet Mike Nowacki, who served two stints in Baghdad, starting in 1990, before retiring in 2006 -- spending the last two years as an interrogator. Don't miss this harrowing account reminiscent of the raw early writings from the Vietnam War.

New York critics are raving:

New York Theatre Review : "precise and haunting direction... (Bolger is) terrifying, intensely grounded... written with urgent honesty ... Excellent, manipulative and thought-provoking..."

NY Theatre.com: "...the real deal... packs a wallop... (Bolger is) magnetic and imposing... expertly directed."
