Adventure Stage Chicago Spark
 
Pandora lives a regimented life within the underground tunnels of Sanctuary, a secluded community designed to outlast the raging violence outside its walls. Each inhabitant of Sanctuary has a purpose, a place, and a common enemy-the mysterious Outliers who live in the world above. But after Pandora personally encounters two young Outliers, she starts to question all that has been taught to her. Is Sanctuary the safe haven she has always believed it to be, or a prison built on fear? As sides are chosen and truths shattered, Pan must ultimately decide between the life she knows and the one that is calling to her. Using projections designed by Liviu Pasare to simulate the texting and gaming that is ever-present in Sanctuary's techno-savvy world, this inventive adventure set in the near future is recommended for ages 9 (grade 4) and up

As his war veteran father becomes more paranoid and his mother, a teacher, more worried, the question remains: What happened to Trace? Without Trace was written by Eric Lockley, an up-and-coming playwright who also wrote Blacken The Bubble, and is directed by Carla Stillwell, who also directed 2008's She Calls up the Sun. Lockley describes Without Trace as an entertaining story that comments on the social and political hurdles still present in America, including gun violence and missing children.
