Photo Flash: First Look at Sideshow's THE GACY PLAY, Opens 6/28

June 28
6:50 AM 2012
Sideshow Theatre Company delves into the reality and fantasy of one of America's most notorious serial killers, in the world premiere of Chicago playwright Calamity West's The Gacy Play. Developed with Sideshow over two and a half years, West's play looks under the floorboards of a nondescript suburban home, and reveals the many ghosts hiding underneath. The Gacy Play opens tonight, and we have a first look at the production photos below.

The cast includes Sideshow Artistic Associate Andy Luther as John Wayne Gacy, Jr., with Deanne Boyd, Jim Farrell, Andrew Goetten, Joe Mack, Elizabeth B. Murphy, Alex Ring, Adam Shalzi and Andy Sheagren.

It's Christmas, 1975, and the crawlspace is open in suburban Chicago. John Wayne Gacy, Jr. is a man with secrets beneath his floor, but when his wife and friends start asking questions, he withdraws into his own world and his late-night conversations with the smoking, swaggering Duke who shares his name. As ghosts begin crowding the household, the divide between dream and reality vanishes, and the smell just keeps on getting worse. Sideshow Theatre Company and playwright Calamity West delve deep into the mind of Chicago's infamous serial killer in this world premiere production and unearth an otherworldly meditation on masculinity and violence that hits all too close to home.

The show runs Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM, and Sundays at 3 PM from June 28 – July 29, 2012. Preview Performances are Sat., June 23 at 8 PM; Sun., June 24 at 3 PM; & Wed., June 27 at 8 PM.

Tickets cost $20 - $25 and can be purchased by visiting www.sideshowtheatre.org or www.theaterwit.org or calling Theater Wit Box Office at (773) 975-8150.
