Rising Sun Performance Company Presents Hellcab November 7 - December 12
Hellcab ran for a 13 Week sold out Run in 2005-06, it delighted both audiences & critics alike!
Hell Cab is a day in the life story of a cab driver in for the longest night of his life as he transports a bizarre and mysterious collection of customers through the gritty streets of Chicago.
Playwright and Chicago cab driver Will Kern draws from personal experiences to create thealternately frightening, hilarious and poignant, Hellcab. Throughout his long shift the bizarre and eclectic collection of passengers who enter our Hero's cab, a trio of drug-addicts, a rape victim, a fellow cab driver, a smug lawyer, a born-again couple on their way to church, a randy couple on their way to a motel, and others bring about an emotional and existential transformation.
How lasting is a 30 second conversation? What do you really look like to those eyes in the rear view mirror? When do the barriers of passenger and Driver disappear? And can the Christmas spirit really restore someone's faith in humanity? Do you really want to find out?
Critically Acclaimed Director Akia has gathered an immensely talented group of actors who will be playing multiple roles in this ensemble driven play.
