Produced by TUTA Theatre Chicago, THE EDGE OF OUR BODIES is a Chicago premiere play by acclaimed American writer and Pulitzer Prize finalist Adam Rapp. This haunting and deeply moving story follows 16 year old Bernadette, an aspiring young writer as she journeys through New York City and teeters on the verge of adulthood. A unique coming of age story, the play honestly and delicately paints the journey of our teenage years, at times uncertain, always full of yearning, and empowered by devastating and uplifting experiences.
Rapp an accomplished American novelist, playwright, screenwriter, director and musician making his TUTA debut this season. An Illinois native born and raised in Joliet, Rapp brings a comprehensive understanding of the Midwest to all of his writing.
