Apocalypse

The Disappeared

The Public House Theater
Chicago, Illinois (IL)

In 2001, Peter Dahm, Rosaline Watters, and Bill Pringle, three people from Destrehan, Louisiana, disappeared mysteriously without a trace. FBI unsolvable crimes detective AW Goodyear and his partner, Barbara Cue, are called in but fail to unravel the mystery. 15 years later, while promoting his latest book on a local radio show, AW gets an anonymous tip that re-opens the case. AW and Barbara (who has since left law enforcement to open her own barbecue restaurant) join forces again to track down ‘The Vanished Three.’ In the end we find out that the three were transported to an inter-dimensional void by a shoddy magician (Gary Grant) who purchased the trick from a bitter voodoo shop proprietor (Voodoo Vic). The show follows AW and Barbara on their journey to solve the case moving between present day and past events. The show plays out like a mystery-style show, with information being revealed gradually to the audience, and we’re going for a True Detective/X-files kind-of vibe.

Circus

The Titus Andronicus Project

The Public House Theater
Chicago, Illinois (IL)

“Titus Andronicus” is not William Shakespeare’s most popular play, but when it is mounted, it makes a powerful statement. The story is a simple and grotesque portrait of the perversions of power, revenge and the consequences of our primal fear of “The Other.” A legendary general takes a foreign queen captive, slaughters her oldest son, and sets off a chain of events which sees his own daughter violated and disfigured, and the Queen’s remaining, offending sons baked into a pie.

Nights

Hot Nights

The Public House Theater
Chicago, Illinois (IL)

The year is 1928. The place: The South Side of Chicago. Audrey and Maxine run a successful, late-night speakeasy called “Hot Nights.” But savvy as they are, and they are, the two women must use all of their wiles to navigate a landscape of racism, sexism, powerful gangsters, crooked cops and their own diverse customers as they strive to break through the glass ceiling of night-club ownership and the illegal hooch trade. Their quest for economic and social independence is filled with comedy, music, dance and arguments of race and gender that still resound today.

Bye Bye Liver: The Chicago Drinking Play!

The Public House Theater
Chicago, Illinois (IL)

Bye Bye Liver is a series of outrageous sketches, all centered around Chicago’s favorite past time: Drinking!

We all have that one friend who is never-ever-allowed to go near liquor again. Or maybe it’s the girl that has one martini too many and just can’t shut up about her ex-boyfriend. Perhaps it’s that horrible moment when you realize you have to break the seal right now; but the line for the bathroom hasn’t moved in half an hour.

Whatever it is, we’ve all been there, and it’s all spoofed right here in BYE BYE LIVER.

Sleeping Around

The Public House Theater

Now making her home in Chicago, Kit is a member of the Public House Theatre ensemble, an alumna of the Duplicity Ensemble, and is mounting her full-length comedy that has been a few years in the works. As a stand-up, like the character she plays in “Sleeping Around,” Rivers fearlessly exposes her most personal foibles and successes, ranging from fiery, dysfunctional relationships to contemplative masturbation and everything in between.
