Proud to share the news that my Yukon Gold Rush play "RUSH" will be a part of Artemisia, A Chicago Theatre's "Her Story Is Our Story" Fall Festival. I couldn't be more thrilled to have this play finally presented in Chicago (which happens to be the city in which the characters' journey starts)!
I describe this play as Deadwood meets Memento. With women.
It’s 1899. Frank and Belinda stand at the threshold of a new life in the Yukon Gold Rush. But are they really brother and sister? And what horror did they leave behind? Even if the law catches up with them, will it matter in this wild frontier? Told in a dark, poetic, and fractured way, RUSH asks whether escaping your past only makes it haunt you all the more.
Here's a page on my site that has more info about the play and its production history. It's been wonderful working with AD Julia Proudfoot to make this happen.
