Vanya (Or, 'That's Life!')  
Rasaka Theatre Company at Edge Theatre Vanya (Or, 'That's Life!')
 
Anton Chekhov's Uncle Vanya continues to be one of the greatest and continually relevant of plays - concerned with family relationships, broken hearts, and the rampant disappointment of midlife crisis. In this hilarious and sharp reinvention, there is great providence in the shattering of a teacup, time moves backwards, and our bored, sad Chekhovian friends have a tendency to lapse into singing American Indie folk tunes. What could be more Russian? Or American?
   
The Weir  
Irish Theatre of Chicago at The Den Theatre The Weir
 
An enigmatic young woman from Dublin finds herself the center of attention at a local pub. Pints in hand, the local barflies recount ghostly yarns of the supernatural to impress and entertain her, but it is the visitor herself who relates the most unsettling story of all. McPherson wrote the hauntingly beautiful and humorous play The Weir at the age of 26, winning the Olivier Award for Best New Play, and the Evening Standard Award for Most Promising Playwright.
   
What of the Night?  
Chicago's Cor Theater and Stage Left Theatre at Theater Wit What of the Night?
 
A finalist for the 1990 Pulitzer Prize, What of the Night? interweaves four one-acts that follow an extended family whose lives are intricately intertwined even as they try to escape the ties that bind them. When Birdie, a just-married 14-year-old leaves her impoverished home to seek a better life, she unwittingly sets in motion a sprawling epic spanning time and geography. Her daughter Rainbow finds love. Her son Charlie finds solace in loyalty. Her son Ray finds the trappings of success. For each, survival and the preservation of loved ones is the name of the game. Though their yearnings are briefly rewarded, Fornes's lyrical play lays bare the difference between the hunger of the soul and the hunger of the ego.
