Jeff Award Winner 2016 for
BEST PRODUCTION OF A PLAY and BEST ENSEMBLE
Showing at the Chopin Theatre September 1-October 21, 2017!
"The very great artistic worth of this piece, beautifully toned and staged by Stalling, lies in its ability to make you think about what really matters in your life without going through such a harrowing day yourself. How better to honor those who lost their lives?"
"This is a daring story to bring to the theater, but one that despite the tragic event will give you a feeling of warmth and hopefulness."
Around the City
“I love you, hurry home. I love you.” On July 19, 1989, a DC-10 headed for O’Hare with 296 aboard is paralyzed mid-air. For 44 minutes, the aircraft descended towards an emergency landing and crashed at Sioux City Gateway airport. To the astonishment of all who witnessed the event, 184 of 296 passengers and crew survived. Drawing on the interviews and research conducted by Evanston author Laurence Gonzales for his critically acclaimed book, Flight 232: A Story of Disaster and Survival, this award-winning original play, United Flight 232, is a reflection on how to comprehend tragedy and celebrate human ingenuity in the face of overwhelming challenges.
