Mary-Arrchie Theatre Co. continues its 28th Season with HELLISH HALF-LIGHT: Shorter Play of Samuel Beckett featuring six of the Irish playwright''s works directed by Jennifer Markowitz, playing through August 30, 2014 at Angel Island, 731 W. Sheridan Rd. in Chicago. Tickets are available at www.ticketweb.com or by calling the box office at (773) 871-0442. The press performance is Thursday, July 24 at 8 pm.

HELLISH HALF-LIGHT features Molly Fisher, Rudy Galvan, Lauren Guglielmello, Adam Soule, Stephen Walker and Kathrynne Wolf.

Six actors assume multiple roles as six of Samuel Beckett''s shorter works are staged together in one theatrical experience, in which audience members and characters seamlessly share the same space.

The six shorts include Castastrophe, Come and Go, Play, Rough For Theater I, Rough For Theater II and What Where: an autocratic director and his assistant put the final touches on the last moment of a play that consists entirely of a man standing still onstage; three women of indeterminable age sit quietly together on a bench surrounded by darkness, whispering secrets to each other; a man, his wife and his mistress, each imprisoned in individual urns, are held captive by an interrogating, hellish half-light; on a derelict street corner, a man in a wheelchair meets a blind beggar; two bureaucrats search through papers and testimony used to decide the fate of the man standing at a window, posed to jump; and an interrogator engages in self-reflection by directing a memory to perform.

The production team for HELLISH HALF-LIGHT includes: Nate Combs (scenic design), Stefin Steberl (costume design), Tyler Garlock (lighting design), Joe Court (sound design), Lukas Brasherfons (dramaturg), Mike Sanow (technical director), Molly Dannenberg (assistant director) Richard Cotovsky (production manager) and Andrew C. Donnelly (stage manager).
