About Face to Stage METHTACULAR! at Theater Wit, 8/21-9/28

About Face Theatre, in association with Justin Brill, will launch its 2014-15 season with Methtacular!, written and performed by Steven Strafford and directed by Adam Fitzgerald. In this Chicago premiere, Strafford shares his brutally honest and often comedic story of survival in the underground world of Chicago's crystal meth scene. Methtacular! plays August 21 - September 28, 2014 at Theater Wit, 1229 W. Belmont Ave. in Chicago. Tickets are available at www.aboufacetheatre.com, by calling (773) 975-8150 or in person at the Theater Wit Box Office. The press opening is Sunday, August 24 at 4 pm.

Methtacular! is Steven Strafford's hilarious and harrowing autobiographical account of his three years as a crystal meth addict in Chicago. Through comedy, songs, and plenty of honest storytelling, Strafford brings audiences on a journey through the chemical highs, devastating lows, and ultimate redemption from his drug addled, sex crazed life.

"After playing to sold-out crowds and rave reviews in New York, Cincinnati and Portland, this unique piece of theatre is finally coming home to Chicago where it was born and bred," comments AFT Artistic Director Andrew Volkoff. "Crystal meth addiction has been a serious national problem for years in the gay community, and especially here in the Midwest. A talented artist and brilliant storyteller, Steven shines a light on addiction that is at once funny and thought provoking, turning his journey down the rabbit hole into a compelling and comedic evening. Virtuosic and soulbaringly honest, Methtacular! is a play that audiences won't soon forget," adds Volkoff.

The production team for Methtacular! Includes David L. Arsenault (scenic design) Sarah Hughey (lighting design) and Paul Perry (sound design).
