The Stranger and The Shadow

Vittum Theater
1012 N. Noble Chicago

A girl, Wren, enters Colfax, a city surrounded by a shadowy barrier which feeds on the fear of its citizens. Rejected for her differences, she teams up with a local misfit to bring to life a new creature powerful enough to challenge the monstrous entity and help people outside access the resources they need to live. The play uses human actors and life-size puppets to physicalize social forces, drawing inspiration from The Golem of Prague and youth activists who seek to alter cultures of intolerance through empathy and inclusivity.

Presented by Adventure Stage Chicago and Rough House Theater

"...Despite flaws in structure and messy plotting, there's lovely puppet work, some magic sprinkled over, and the central point of the show, to feel what you feel and to speak truth to power, all make for worthwhile pieces to an okay whole."
