Keith Huff's SIX CORNERS to Premiere at American Blues Theater

American Blues Theater continues its 2017-2018 Season with the World Premiere of Six Corners, written by Keith Huff and directed by Gary Griffin.

Six Corners runs February 16, 2018 - March 24, 2018 at Stage 773, 1225 W. Belmont Ave. in Chicago. The official press opening is February 22, 2018 at 7:30 p.m.

Penned by Emmy Award nominee Keith Huff (Broadway's A Steady Rain) and directed by Gary Griffin (Broadway's The Color Purple): late one night, two burnt-out violent crimes unit detectives try their damnedest to close the puzzling murder of a CTA employee. What should be a simple open-and-shut case, however, evolves into a horrifying mystery and unearths a legacy of violence stretching back years.

Six Corners was awarded a 2017 Edgerton Foundation Play Award.
