The Sweet Stuff

Gorilla Tango Theatre
1919 N. Milwaukee Ave Chicago

Blue-collar Jerry Ward finds himself and his daughter caught in a high stakes game of cat and mouse after the sudden death of his wife. Jerry's singularly rare blood type is the only thing keeping the son of the powerful, white-collar Walter Joyce alive. The tension swells as Jerry's daughter becomes a pawn in this suspense story that confronts the issues of medical ethics, the real commodities that rule our lives, and begs the question: what are the acceptable moral boundaries a parent can overlook to save their only child?

"...While the production is not perfect, the reasons to see it far outweigh any flaws. It is one of the best written world premieres of the year with one the best performances so far this year, so to miss out on this brief run would be foolish. Young artists wising to put their work on at Gorilla Tango should definitely take a look because it is one of the first shows I have seen to take true advantage of the space. This production rivals those of well-established non-equity storefronts and makes me very excited for the future of Chased by an Elephant and playwright Jayme McGhan. Keep an eye out for them."
