Photo Flash: First Look at Rivendell's HOW THE WORLD BEGAN

Rivendell Theatre Ensemble (RTE), Chicago's only Equity theatre dedicated to producing new work with women at the core, announces the third production of its 20th Anniversary Season, the Chicago premiere of HOW THE WORLD BEGAN, written by Catherine Trieschmann and directed by Keira Fromm. The production runs now through October 10, 2015, at Rivendell Theatre Ensemble, 5779 N. Ridge Avenue in Chicago. The press opening is Wednesday, September 9, 2015, at 7:00pm. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast onstage below!

Religion and science collide in a visceral examination of the way in which we navigate interpersonal relationships involving seemingly irreconcilable beliefs-and just how hard it is to truly listen to one another in an increasingly polarized world. Looking to rebuild her fractured life, high school biology teacher Susan relocates from New York City to a small Kansas town reeling in the aftermath of a devastating tornado. Ready for more than a little culture shock, Susan finds herself unprepared for the firestorm that engulfs the town after she makes an off-handed comment about the origin of the universe.

The cast of HOW THE WORLD BEGAN includes RTE members Rebecca Spence and Keith Kupferer, with Curtis Edward Jackson.
