PlayMakers Laboratory's THAT'S WEIRD, GRANDMA: House Par-Tay

Streaming March 1 – 29, 2021.

PlayMakers Laboratory has announce the March 2021 line-up for its popular online revue That's Weird, Grandma: House Par-Tay, celebrating Women's History Month, St. Patrick's Day and Easter, plus a special Poetry Slam edition.

The creative series of stories written by elementary school students, adapted and performed by PML's professional actors streams Mondays at 8 pm CST from March 1 - 29, 2021 via Patreon. Tickets ($2 - $4 subscriptions) are currently available at playmakerslab.org.

Now in its 20th year, That's Weird, Grandma features adaptations of stories written during PlayMakers Laboratory's creative writing residencies in Chicago elementary schools. PML's ensemble of professional actors, comedians and musicians bring the young authors' stories to life as raucous sketches, songs and movement pieces, performing first for students in their schools and then for the public. These stories - from hilarious dialogues between unlikely characters to poignant pleas for social change - resonate with adults while celebrating the imaginations of young people.
