Victory Gardens Theater to Continue 2013-14 Season with THE GOSPEL OF LOVINGKINDNESS, 2/28-3/30
Victory Gardens Theater continues its 2013-2014 season with the World Premiere of The Gospel of Lovingkindness by Victory Gardens Ensemble Playwright Marcus Gardley, directed by Artistic Director Chay Yew. The Gospel of Lovingkindness runs February 28 - March 30, 2014, with the press performance on March 7, 2014, at Victory Gardens Theater, 2433 N. Lincoln Avenue.
After Emanuel is murdered for his new pair of Air Jordans, his mother, Mary, rebuilds her life in the Bronzeville neighborhood she calls home. As fervent and poetic as a gospel hymn, this potent drama about faith, family and loss was inspired by true events.
Playwright Marcus Gardley says, "I'm utterly thrilled to be making my debut as a Playwright's Ensemble Member at Victory Gardens. The Gospel of Lovingkindness is giving me an opportunity to explore Bronzeville, a neighborhood with deep roots and rich culture. I can't wait to bring this story to life on one of Chicago's finest stages."
