  Gentle at The Den Theatre


The Den Theatre
1329-1333 N. Milwaukee Chicago

GENTLE, is a world premiere adapted and directed by Founding Artistic Director Zeljko Djukic, based on the short story "A Gentle Woman", by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. It follows a young immigrant woman, a pawnbroker, and their maid over the course of a short, mysterious marriage. Dostoevsky's brilliant tale of the obsessive power of ego, and its ability to push ordinary people to extraordinary measures, is modernized by Djukic as a story of our times. Surprising and sharp-witted, GENTLE combines the Russian master storyteller's ability to reveal extremes of human nature, with TUTA's characteristic sophistication and inventiveness.

"...Fortunately, Tucker and Demerath are effective storytellers, forming strong images in Djukic’s world (already a stable architecture) such that we’re able to maintain a grasp on the larger picture of “Gentle”: love in a capitalist society; the nature of wounds; how jealousy and want for an idea can erode a person. And at it’s core: what are the lies we tell ourselves to protect our hearts?"
