Shattered Globe's SHEEPDOG Has Been Extended

Shattered Globe Theatre has announced its hit Chicago premiere of Kevin Artigue's drama Sheepdog, directed by Wardell Julius Clark will add two additional weeks of performances, extending through Sunday, March 15, 2020 at Theater Wit, 1229 W. Belmont Ave. in Chicago. Tickets for all performances are currently available at, by calling (773) 975-8150 or in person at the Theater Wit Box Office

Sheepdog features Leslie Ann Sheppard and SGT Ensemble Member Drew Schad*.

Amina and Ryan are both officers on the Cleveland police force. Amina is black, Ryan is white, and they are falling deeply and passionately in love. When an officer-involved shooting roils the department, the cracks in their relationship widen into confusion and self-doubt. At breakneck speed, Amina's dogged pursuit of the truth may exact a devastating toll on their relationship. Sheepdog is both a riveting mystery and a love story with high stakes and no easy answers. It fearlessly examines police violence, interracial love and class in the 21st century.

Director Wardell Julius Clark remarked, "I am excited to make my Shattered Globe directorial debut with Sheepdog. This play focuses on interracial love in the face of incredible odds, high career stakes, and duty to oneself and community. As I continue my personal artistic journey with stories that investigate social justice themes, while illuminating, celebrating, and relishing in the black experience, I am thrilled for the opportunity to challenge Chicago audiences with Sheepdog."

Sheepdog is pleased to participate in Chicago Theatre Week 2020, taking place February 13 - 23, 2020. The annual celebration features discounts to more than 100 performances across Chicago. For tickets and additional information, visit
