Polarity Ensemble Theatre kicks off its 2014 -15 season with the world premiere of MIRACLES IN THE FALL, a searing drama in which a family must surmount the lies and betrayals that have twisted their lives. MIRACLES IN THE FALL is written by Dionysos Cup Award Winner Chuck O'Connor and directed by Jeff Award Winner Richard Shavzin. It plays September 3 - October 5, 2014 at the Greenhouse Theater Center, 2257 N. Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL 60614, where Polarity begins the second year of its new residency. Tickets are available at www.petheatre.com or by calling the box office at 773-404-7336. The press opening is Saturday, September 6 at 8:00 PM.
MIRACLES IN THE FALL features: Laura Berner Taylor, Rian Jairell, Mickey O'Sullivan and Fred Wellisch.
The story at the heart of MIRACLES IN THE FALL centers on the life of Clare Connelly, a nun in 1968 Detroit who discovers secrets about her family that have driven their collective shame and disastrous life decisions. The play is reminiscent of the work of Eugene O'Neill. Deep betrayals of the past twist the lives of the Connellys, but faith, family and forgiveness allow redemption for some.
MIRACLES IN THE FALL was developed in POLARITY ENSEMBLE THEATRE 2013 DIONYSOS CUP FESTIVAL OF NEW PLAYS. It is the eighth Polarity-developed play by a Chicago-area playwright to reach its world premiere on a Chicago stage.

White, USA (light design), Aaron Stephenson (sound design), Maggie Speer (props) Rachel Ramirez (managing director), Nicole Smith (production manager), Jamie Crothers (stage manager) and Richard Engling (artistic director).
