Tippy: Stories From The River

Flat Iron Arts Building
1579 N. Milwaukee Ave. Chicago

Night after night, the Fisherman can be seen traveling up and down the Tippecanoe River, searching for the one he loved and lost, a woman called Tippy," Kirk tells his young niece and nephew one fateful summer, like he's done every summer for as long as they can remember. Now grown, Ella and her family - her brother Terrence, her mother Lori, her father Brady, and her aunt Joan - reflect back on the stories Kirk told and the ones they've told themselves. As Kirk's tales flood over the line that separates fable and reality, Ella and her loved ones reconcile with the past, the present, and the unknown.

Chicago Theatre Review - Somewhat Recommended

"...Tippy and her river saga is a perfect Halloween entertainment, particularly when the play sticks to the main plot. That story is dreamy and filled with subtle secrecy and unexpected twists that create the tension of a good ghost story. Itís when the play derails and goes off in other directions that the audience becomes confused and loses interest. When Kayla Belecís original drama focuses on the main event she has a winning vehicle. This play is capable of chilling the blood of even the most pragmatic theatergoer, especially if it were to be presented uninterrupted by an intermission. Itís then that the river will flow smoothly with an enthralling ghost story."

"...This play is a blend of comedy and drama with a young, excited energy throughout.In this writerís view, it is for the audience member who finds joy in campfire folklore and fables. Impostors Theatre Company provides us with an opportunity to use our perhaps long-lost sense of wonder with Tippy: Stories from the River. It is a high-energy, small-scale performance with nothing to hide."
