Lady Faust Opens at the Public House Theatre This Saturday (Oct. 7)

AN IMMORTAL MORALITY TALE IS REINVENTED FOR A NEW GENERATION AT THE PUBLIC HOUSE THEATRE
Adapted by Sharai Bohannon and Sophie Duntley
Directed by Sophie Duntley

Chicago, IL (September 13th, 2017) – The year is 1933. The Great Depression has plunged many into darkness and poverty. But not the Fausts. The patriarch of the Faust family has just died, and instead of leaving his lucrative business and assets to his oldest, most capable daughter, he has transferred everything to his younger, inept son. Enraged by the injustice, and ready to save the family business, Lady Faust takes matters into her own hands, the way her father did, and many Fausts before him. She makes a pact with Lucifer, to make women equal to men in public and private affairs. With her signature etched in her arm, Lady Faust has one year to control the company and persuade the powers that be to elevate women to a higher status. If she fails, her soul belongs to Lucifer.

About Lady Faust:  Since working together for The Public House Theatre’s “Bye Bye Liver” and “The Vagina Monologues,” Sophie Duntley and Sharai Bohannon have shared a vision: An adaptation of Christopher Marlowe’s “Dr. Faustus,” with females in the driver’s seat. Inspired by Vancouver’s recent, depression-era “Gastown,” Duntley and Bohannon got to work updating Marlowe’s work (preserving the verse), with a message that rings as chillingly in our Post-Election era as it would at the time of the Depression: How much must women sacrifice to prove their worth to a society that fears change?

“Lady Faust” is a bewitching struggle between good and evil, delivered right on time for Halloween season.

Sharai Bohannon’s “Craigslisted” has been produced across the country. When she’s not writing, she can be found running tech for various shows at The Public House Theatre.

Sophie Duntley made her directorial debut with Theresa Rebeck’s “Loose Knit” at The Public House Theatre, and frequently takes the stage in TPHT’s flagship show, “Bye Bye Liver.”

The cast includes: Bradley Bankemper, Torey Byrne, Kayla Cole, Zach Hebert, Whitman Johnson, Haley Keeley, Heather Smith

PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE: October 7th-28th, Saturdays at 7:30pm

WHERE: The Public House Theatre, 3914 N. Clark St., Chicago, IL 60613

BOX OFFICE: 773.230.4770 or thepubtheatre.com

TICKETS: $15

RUNTIME: 75 min.

WEBPAGE: http://thepubtheatre.com/show/lady-faust-15/2017-10-07/

THE PUBLIC HOUSE THEATRE: The friendliest theatre in Chicago invites you to enjoy a show or two that “puts the efforts of Saturday Night Live to shame (Chicago SunTimes),” where “The modus operandi seems to be coming up with the sort of ideas that seem brilliant when you’re smashed at 2 a.m. and then…actually making them work (The Examiner).” If you’re thirsty, take advantage of the excellent drink deals at the full bar, especially if you’re a fine whiskey or craft beer lover. With any show on any night of the week, it’s “impossible to not have a good time (TimeOut Chicago).” ThePubTheatre.com

Mr. Lee’s Night of Horror Opens This Friday (Oct. 6) at The Public House Theatre

FEAR WEARS MANY FACES IN THE PUBLIC HOUSE THEATRE’S LIVE HORROR SHOW
Directed by Travis Marsala

Chicago, IL (September 13th, 2017) – Superstition. Paranoia. Alienation. There are many ways to be afraid. And Halloween season is the perfect time to sit in a dark room surrounded by the things that scare you the most. Whether it’s the ghost of a woman disfigured beyond recognition, or a child’s prank taken a step too far, or a sandwich that shows you glimpses of your future, the monsters that hid under our beds will be taking the stage this October.

About Mr. Lee’s Night of Horror: Fresh off of a sold-out run of “The Best Western This Side of The Mississippi (and the other side too, we reckon)” Not Your Mother’s Baby has teamed up with other members of The Public House Theatre’s ensemble to create a sketch show that is meant to horrify and delight. In the style of “Tales from the Crypt,” “Mr. Lee’s Night of Horror” is a collection of terrifying 10-minute plays that will send chills from your spine to your funny bone. But mostly your spine.

Writers include: Craig Barnes, Sharai Bohannon, Ryan Burkett, Mark Rosenthal and Adrienne Teeley

PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE: October 6th-27th, Fridays at 7:30pm

WHERE: The Public House Theatre, 3914 N. Clark St., Chicago, IL 60613
