Beggars In The House Of Plenty
731 W. Sheridan Chicago
In this deeply autobiographical work, Tony and Pulitzer Prize Winner John Patrick Shanley tackles his past. A surreal comedy, packed with the wit, insight, confusion, laughter and pain that only family can bring. At once vulgar, poetic and brutally honest, Johnny leads us on a journey through his childhood in the Bronx of the mid-1950’s to the turbulent late 60’s and finally the perspective of his adulthood.
