A Twist of Water

Directed by Michael Osinski
Tickets $13-17. Student, senior, and group discounts available.

Online Production

Noah, a widowed history teacher, struggles to find hope in the wake of his husband’s death. When their adopted daughter Jira decides that she wants to seek out her birth mother, Noah and Jira are forced to re-examine both their own identities and their relationship to each other. Set against the backdrop of Chicago, this poignant play explores the definition of family and the love we find when we allow ourselves to heal.

A Twist of Water portrays characters with intersecting identities that include race and sexual orientation.  We encourage all attendees to join us for the open and free post-show talkback at 8:30pm on Saturday, May 15th to discuss the complex situations that are portrayed in the performance.

All pre-recorded video will be accessible any time from 11am on May 12 until 11:59pm on May 16.
