Another Opening of Another Show

We went out to the opening of the latest Stockyards Theatre Project show tonight (yes, Stockyards has had a very busy spring). This one is Criminal Hearts, a dark comedy by Jane Martin. It's a fun show, skewed just the right amount. Here's the blurb:

When an agoraphobic wife on Chicago's Gold Coast encounters a female burglar one dark night, how far will she go for friendship? or revenge? In this quirky, comedic mix of Thelma and Louise and The Grifters, it is possible a gun is a girl's best friend.

Come see Lori Howard, Janel Palm, Levi Petree, and Andrew Strenk at Chicago Actors Studio at 2040 N. Elston Ave (barely north of Armitage) in Chicago. They're playing on Thursdays through Sundays through May 10.

And don't forget Free Radicals, Stockyards' previous production. Not counting Friday night's performance, Free Radicals finishes up its run after two more weeks of Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday performances.

[Obligatory disclosure to everybody who didn't get the message a few weeks ago: Yes, if you guessed that we've got some connection to Stockyards, you're right: Mrs. Talk Talk Talk Talk Talk is Managing Director of Stockyards, and I serve on the Board of Directors. That doesn't mean you don't have to see either or both of these plays.]
