Creation's Birthday

Creation's Birthday By Hasan Padamsee
March 26 - April 19

Creation's Birthday brings to life the story of the Big-Bang Genesis through the legendary battle between astronomer Edwin Hubble and the scientific icon Albert Einstein. Hubble's name is well known through the sublime views of our Universe from the Hubble Space Telescope (HST), but not many are familiar with the story of Hubble the man, nor with his fascinating discoveries in the heavens. How did a boxing champ, war-hero, Rhodes scholar, and upstart astronomer discover our expanding universe?

The show runs March 26 - April 19 at the Athenaeum Theatre, Studio Two - 2936 N. Southport Ave. - Chicago.

Jihad

Jihad By Stephanie Liss
July 2 - August 2

Just as there are not two sides to terrorism, there are NOT two sides to this play. There is right - and there is wrong, and there is questioning. No middle ground. There is no 'why,' and 'because' to terrorism. Terrorism is NOT an answer, and this story steps out onto that ledge, bringing people inside the world of terror - to feel, to see, to hear, and finally, to bear witness...

The show runs July 2 - August 2 at Theater Wit - 1229 W. Belmont Ave - Chicago.
