Never Swim AloneBy Daniel MacIvor
Directed by Margot Bordelon*
Who's got more cash? Who's got the better pad? Who's got the bigger thing? Two old pals play a deadly game that's more than just a game in Canadian playwright Daniel MacIvor's Never Swim Alone. MacIvor blows the lid off modern masculinity by examining the story of two lifelong friends chained together by one tragic childhood day at the beach.
The Shallow EndBy Wendy MacLeod
Directed by Meghan Beals-McCarthy
Chicago favorite Wendy MacLeod returns with The Shallow End, a clever look at three teenage girls whose friendship is put to the test over the course of one summer. While Teresa and Becca are busy planning tricks on the class oddball, Addie's at the snack bar trying to figure out if the new girl in town is as weird as everyone says she is. And why is Marjorie spending so much time talking to the boy with cancer? Not just another summer hanging out at the city pool...
