  Phantom Pain at The Greenhouse Theater Center

Phantom Pain

The Greenhouse Theater Center
2257 N Lincoln Avenue Chicago

A pair of true BFFs, Angela, who's black, and Marnie, who's white, grew up together in the racially turbulent Detroit of the '70s, and have managed to remain best buds through jobs, marriages and relocation to the Windy City. But the past returns to haunt them in Phantom Pain, when a visit from another childhood friend unearths lies and long-buried secrets that threaten to tear their relationship in two. This world premiere by Chicago playwright Barbara Lhota comes to the stage at the Greenhouse Theater Center.

Chicago Reader - Highly Recommended

"...Lhota, a subtle but effective storyteller, pulls the audience in before we can resist, then keeps us absorbed in her narrative. Her characters are free of cliche-no wonder the actors in this world-premiere Organic Theater production, directed by Laura Sturm, seem to be having a blast. Their passion and energy provide the extra fuel that makes this quiet, intensely introspective tale so compelling."

Windy City Times - Recommended

"...Meg, the outsider, contributes the term "defining experience" and a consciousness-raising game designed to measure social privilege, further highlighting the symposial nature of discourse revolving on a checklist of minority-rights curricula to delay what we really want to know. Under Laura Sturm's direction, however, a well-rehearsed ensemble, surrounded by Austin Wood and Alexis Yordan's move-in ready decor, render the author's agenda sufficiently conversational to keep our curiosity piqued for this world premiere in need of only a slight tweak or two."
