"James Barrie's Quartets" (ShawChicago): Engaging Triple-Play

"James Barrie's Quartets" (ShawChicago):  Engaging Triple-Play

ShawChicago Theatre Company presents James Barrie’s Quartets.

Steering away from their namesake, ShawChicago closes its season with a tribute to the man behind “Peter Pan.”  For this showcase, Director Robert Scogin has selected three one-act plays to perform by a quartet.  Scogin expertly directs the same four actors playing all the parts.  As is the ShawChicago hallmark, the talented actors are staged as a concert play reading.  No costumes, no scenery, no real movement.  It’s just PlaywrightJames Barrie’s words spoken by the ensemble.  The foursome use their wits in an engaging triple-play. In James Barrie’s Quartets, 4 x 3 = Excellent!
