Stage Center Theatre November David Mamet

Directed by Rodney Higginbotham Oct 13, 14, 15, 20, 21 at 7:30 pm Oct 22 at 2 pm and 7:30 pm David Mamet's new Oval Office satire depicts one day in the life of a beleaguered American commanderin-chief. It is set in November, in a presidential election year. Incumbent Charles Smith's chances for reelection are looking grim. Approval ratings are down, his money is running out, and nuclear war is an imminent threat. Though his staff has thrown in the towel and his wife has begun to prepare for her post-White House life, Chuck is not ready to give in. A simple public relations event inspires Smith to risk it all in an attempt to win back public support. With Mamet's characteristic no-holds-barred style, "November" is a scathingly hilarious take on the state of America today and the lengths to which people will go to win. (Samuel French, Inc.)

Real Women Have Curves Josefina Lopez

Directed by Mary Kroeck Dec 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 at 7:30 pm Dec 10 at 2 pm and 7:30 pm Set in a tiny sewing factory in East L.A., this is the outrageously funny story of five full-figured Mexican-American women working and also hiding from the Immigration and Naturalization Service. They are racing to meet nearly impossible deadlines in order to keep their tiny factory from going under. While they work, they talk about their husbands, lovers, children and their dreams for the future. The story is told by Ana, the youngest among the five women. Ana dreams of getting out of the barrio, going to college and becoming a famous writer. She does not enjoy working at the factory and has little respect for her co-workers, who make fun of her ambitions and her idealistic feminist philosophies. Ana chronicles her experiences in a journal and as the summer unfolds, she gains an understanding and appreciation of the work and the women. The play is a microcosm of the Latina immigrant experience. It celebrates real women’s bodies, the power of women and the incredible bonds that form between them. (Samuel French, Inc.)

Cloud 9

Caryl Churchill Directed by John Bliss Feb 23, 24, 25 and March 2, 3 at 7:30 pm March 4 at 2 pm and 7:30 pm This time-shifting comedy by the author of "Top Girls" created a sensation Off-Broadway, directed by Tommy Tune. Set in 1880 in British Africa (as portrayed in old movies, plays and novels), the play is both a parody and spoof of the Victorian Empire and its rigid attitudes, especially toward sex. A round robin of sexual liaisons, the characters include: Clive, a British functionary, his wife Betty (played by a man), their daughter Victoria (a rag doll), Harry, the explorer, Mrs. Saunders, who runs about dressed in a riding habit, Clive’s son Edward (who still plays with dolls and is played by a woman) and Joshua, a native servant who knows what is really going on.

currently trying on a goth identity and has befriended a boy who is into physics and Elvis Presley. They get together in the family home to wait out the coming apocalypse, come to terms with some of their issues and perhaps strengthen the family bond. Cameo appearances by Jesus Christ and Stephen Hawking round out the cast of characters.

Tickets Tickets may be purchased in advance at neiu.edu/tickets, in person at the NEIU Information Center, or by phone at (773) 442-INFO (4636).

The second act shifts to London in 1980 and all the repressed sexual longings have evaporated along with the Empire. (Samuel French, Inc.)

The Laramie Project Moisés Kaufman

and members of The Tectonic Theatre Company November 7-December 7, 2016 Monday, Wednesday, Friday at 10 am In 1998, Matthew Shepard, a 21-yearold gay student at the University of Wyoming, was tied to a cattle fence, beaten about the head, robbed and left to die on a bitterly cold night in October. He never regained consciousness and died in a hospital several days later.

Moisés Kaufman’s internationally successful play explores issues of class, economics, religion, education and non-traditional lifestyles through the residents’ raw responses to the incident. Does this crime define the culture, not just of this Western town, but of the entire United States? This production is suitable for grades 7-12.

The Clam Made a Face Eric Nicol

March-April, 2017 Monday, Wednesday, Friday at 10 am “Our stories are truth wrapped in the dark cloak of time.” The First Nations of Northwest America celebrate an annual tradition of the Potlatch, a joyous ceremony of story telling and feasting. In this play the Kwakiutl, a tribe living in what is now British Columbia, welcome young audiences to their festival, and invite the children to help in the telling of tales.

Photo by: Ann Hartdegen

With funny and dramatic turns, the legends range from the creation of human beings (The Raven and the Clam) to the meaning of life (Siwash Rock). This production is suitable for grades K-7. CTW play choices are subject to change in order to meet the needs of NEIU students enrolled in the courses. 9
