End Days  
Windy City Playhouse End Days
 
A 2008 finalist for The Harold and Mimi Steinberg/ATCA New Play Award, End Days is the story of the Steins - a typical American family working their way through tragedy, each in his or her own way. In the aftermath of 9/11, it's no wonder that Sylvia Stein (Gluschenko) thinks the end of the world is coming. It's also no wonder that teenaged Rachel (Sari Sanchez) thinks her newly Evangelical mother is a fool, and looks to physicist Stephen Hawking (Strafford) for solace. Father and husband Arthur (Kupferer) has taken an entirely different approach: never changing out of his pajamas. But, an Elvis-impersonating next-door neighbor (Cefalu, Jr.) may just be able to bring the Steins - and their disparate views on the world - together.
