Photo Flash: First Look at About Face Theatre's THE SECRETARIES


About Face Theatre continues its 20th Anniversary Season with the Chicago premiere of the dark comedy THE SECRETARIES by The Five Lesbian Brothers aka Maureen Angelos, Babs Davy, Dominique Dibbell, Peg Healey and Tony Award winner Lisa Kron (Fun Home). Directed by Bonnie Metzgar, THE SECRETARIES will play now through June 12, 2016 at Theater Wit, 1229 W. Belmont Ave. in Chicago. The press opening is tonight, May 12 at 7:30 pm. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

THE SECRETARIES features AFT Artistic Associate Kelli Simpkins with Erin Barlow, Meghan Reardon, Sadieh Rifai and Lauren Sivak.

Patty Johnson lands the job of her dreams at the Cooney Lumber Mill in Big Bone, Oregon. But it's a comic nightmare when she discovers - amidst slim fast shakes, celibacy pacts and hotel rendezvous (with Magic Fingers, of course!) - that her secretarial pool are chainsaw-wielding lumberjack killers! Equal parts humor, horror and satire, THE SECRETARIES is Twin Peaks meets The Stepford Wives in a smart, campy (and bloody!) comedy.

The production team for THE SECRETARIES includes William Boles (scenic design), Mieka van der Ploeg (costume design), Rebecca Levy (lighting design), Miles Polaski (sound design) and Helen Lattyak (stage manager).

Tickets are currently available at, by calling (773) 975-8150 or in person at Theater Wit Box Office.
