Casting Announced for The Gift Theatre's A SWELL IN THE GROUND
The Gift Theatre is pleased to announce casting for its world premiere of Janine Nabers' time-hopping love story A SWELL IN THE GROUND directed by ensemble member Chika Ike, playing October 13 - December 10, 2017 at 4802 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago.
In intimate rooms throughout New York and Michigan, four friends from college fight through 17 years of love affairs, shattered dreams and compromised lives. Flipping back and forth through time like a photobook, this play - whose title is from a line of Emily Dickinson poetry - is equally breathtaking and heartbreakingly spare as Olivia, Nate, Abigail and Charles try to reconcile the lives they imagined with the lives they live.
The production team for A SWELL IN THE GROUND includes: Eleanor Kahn (scenic design), Rachel Lambert (costume design), Eric Watkins (lighting design), Christopher Kriz (sound design), Ellie Terrell (props design), Gaby Labotka (violence/intimacy design), Smooch Medina (video/projections design) and Corine James (stage manager).
