Bailiwick Chicago's PRINCESS MARY DEMANDS YOUR ATTENTION Begins 1/15 at Victory Gardens


On the heels of its wildly-successful production of The Wild Party, Bailiwick Chicago is pleased to continue its 2014-15 season with the world premiere of the fierce new play PRINCESS MARY DEMANDS YOUR ATTENTION by Resident Playwright Aaron Holland*, directed by Artistic Director Lili-Anne Brown*, playing January 15 - February 21, 2015 at Victory Gardens Richard Christiansen Theater, 2433 N. Lincoln Ave. in Chicago. Tickets go on sale Friday, November 21, 2014 at, by calling (773) 871-3000 or in-person at the Victory Gardens Box Office. The press opening is Friday, January 23 at 8 pm.

PRINCESS MARY DEMANDS YOUR ATTENTION will feature Baron Clay, TJ Crawford, Armand Fields, David Kaplinsky, Pam Mack, Rus Rainear, Omer Abbas Salem and Jeremy Sonkin.

PRINCESS MARY DEMANDS YOUR ATTENTION tells the soulful story of Amari Bolkonski, a gay, black daydreamer seemingly "stuck" in life. A chance meeting throws him into to a decade-long journey to personal acceptance and freedom, guided (and haunted) by an inexplicable and challenging drag queen. With storytelling that incorporates music and dance, PRINCESS MARY DEMANDS YOUR ATTENTION - inspired by parts of Tolstoy's War & Peace -is a fierce new play that ultimately demands an answer to the question: Is there really anything in your way?

The production team for PRINCESS MARY DEMANDS YOUR ATTENTION includes Megan Truscott (scenic designe/production manager), Raquel Adorno (costume designer), Brian Hoehne (lighting designer), Patrick Bley (sound designer), Wil Deleguardia (technical director) and Kyle Haden (assistant director/dramaturg).
