5:49 PM 2012

"CLUTTER: The True Story of the Collyer Brothers Who Never Threw Anything Out" will run through March 11 at the Greenhouse Theater Center and will feature a special talkback session immediately following the 7:30 p.m. performances every other Thursday evening. Dr. Scott Kaplan, an Illinois licensed clinical psychologist, will facilitate these sessions to address questions about hoarding and other themes explored in the play.

Check out photos from the February 2 Talkback with Michael Kostroff ("The Wire" and "Les Miserables" National Tour) below! 

"CLUTTER" is written by seven-time Emmy Award winning playwright Mark Saltzman and is based on the true story of the wealthy, reclusive Collyer brothers who became hoarders in their Fifth Avenue mansion in 1920s Harlem. After years of compulsive collecting, the brothers have become notorious shut-ins in their aristocratic New York neighborhood.  Langley Collyer is missing and Homer Collyer is found dead amongst floor-to-ceiling piles of newspapers, books, and junk. The police investigating the case, two brothers with a strained relationship mirroring that of the Collyers, are simultaneously making discoveries about themselves. Narrated by the brothers and the police investigating the bizarre case, this darkly tale explores human behavior.

"CLUTTER" stars Andrew J. Pond as "Langley Collyer" (Metropolis, Citadel, Piccolo, Redtwist, Blue Heron, and Circle Theatre); Northwestern and University of Chicago graduate Edward Kuffert as "Homer Collyer" (Center Stage, City Lit, Inconceivable, Halcyon, Hubris, GroundUp, Big Noise, Citadel, and Jeff nominated as "Danforth" in The Crucible at Infamous Commonwealth); Joe Mack as "Sgt. Reilly Dolan"; and Michael Jay Bullaro as "Patrolman Keven Dolan" (Goodman, Citadel, and Harper Theatre Ensemble). The production also features Jeff Award winner Stephen M. Genovese (former Artistic Director of Bohemian Theatre Company and Tim Walsh
