Award Winning Production Of TENDER NAPALM By Philip Ridley Makes its Chicago Premiere

Quick + Dirty is excited to introduce Philip Ridley's work to Chicago. Tender Napalm is a force of human spectacle and its virtues were proven when Quick + Dirty swept the 2018 Portland Oregon Theater Awards, honored 6 times for their 2017 production including Best Production, Director, Outstanding Movement Achievement, Actor, Actress, Fight Choreography and a nomination for Sound Design. Playing December 15th- January 13th, at Nox Arca Theatre, 4001 N Ravenswood Ave. #405 in Chicago. Tickets are currently available at, by calling (805) 886-8485, or in person 30 minutes before the show.

TENDER NAPALM features Rebecca Ridenour* and David Lind*

This explosive two-hander explores a sexual intimacy that wrestles with both violent desire and violent loss. Caught in the creation of their own mythology, Tender Napalm weaves together a story told through theatrical surrealism seldom seen that allows audiences to envelop themselves in the secret corners of tenderness and cruelty that exist between lovers. Rabbit Hole meets Labyrinth.

The production team of Tender Napalm includes Jen Rowe (Producer/Director), Matthew Kerrigan (Producer/Movement), Rebecca Ridenour (Producer) Cameron McFee (Sound design/Set design), Charles Blunt (Lighting Design), Stephanie Hurovitz* (Stage Manager) Kristen Mun (Original Fight Choreography)
