Known for their imaginative and epic theatrical works of science fiction and fantasy, Chicago's Otherworld Theatre now presents the world premiere of their adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' A Princess of Mars. A Confederate deserter, John Carter's world is turned upside-down when he finds himself mysteriously transported to the surface of Mars, where he is forced into a colossal conflict between the planet's alien races. Poised on the edge of collapse, the planet's fate comes to rest on Carter's war-weary shoulders -- and now he must choose sides. Filled with swordplay, otherworldly environments, elaborate costuming and more, A Princess of Mars at Berger Park promises to whisk you away on an unforgettable theatrical adventure.

"...I wanted to believe in the aliens, I really did, but the oinking, growling, torture-loving Tharks were more dork than orc in their wrinkly warthog masks and pleather tunics. John Carter (Elliott Sowards), the earthling hero from Virginia, has the occasional splurt of countrified poignancy to his credit, but for me this play was sheer agony."
