The Comrades' Midwest Premiere Of Political Drama WARRIOR CLASS Starts October 11
The Comrades are pleased to launch their 2018-19 season with the Midwest premiere of Kenneth Lin's political drama WARRIOR CLASS, directed by Carol Ann Tan playing October 11 - November 11, 2018 at the Greenhouse Theater Center, 2257 N Lincoln Avenue in Chicago. The press opening is Saturday, October 13 at 8 pm.
Written by Kenneth Lin, writer and producer of the hit Netflix series House of Cards, WARRIOR CLASS centers on Julius Lee, a New York assemblyman who's been dubbed "The Republican Obama." Lee is the son of immigrants and a decorated war veteran with a seemingly limitless political career ahead of him. When the ghosts of his college days come back to haunt him, Lee must decide how far he'll go to keep a certain incident out of the public eye. Whatever his decision, the consequences may be costly.
At a time when political scandals are regular news items and candidates are being scrutinized by the media and the public alike, WARRIOR CLASS taps into the public's fascination with the world of politics and challenges viewers to think about what we demand and expect of our elected leaders.
The cast includes Ben Veatch (Julius); Scott Olson (Nathan); Alison Plott (Holly). The stage manager is Kamren Smith and the production manager is Melanie Kulas. The design team includes Blake Cordell (Lighting); Sydney Achler (Scenic Design), Uriel Gomez (Costume Design), Erik Siegling (Sound Design), and Brian Sprague (Technical Director).
