Tiny Theatre Presents Teatro Vista’s “Las Abuelas” (The Grandmothers)
Sunday, March 17, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Members—$28 & guests—$30. Registration deadline: Now extended through Tuesday, March 12! To register, please click here or call the Village office at 773.248.8700.
This play, about the long and devastating repercussions of Argentina’s military dictatorship from 1976-1983, asks how one goes on after discovering their life is a lie? Does the restoration of truth bring freedom or suffering? This sequel to “Las Madres” takes place today in Chicago where a young Argentine concert cellist adjusts to life as a new Mom when two strangers interfere in her life. Attendees are welcome to enjoy a self-hosted dinner following the play (restaurant to be determined).
What is Tiny Theatre?
Started in 2011 by Village members and theatre enthusiasts Bobbe Wolf and Myrna Knepler, Tiny Theatre offers members and their guests the opportunity to see unique plays in smaller venues of less than 250 seats. By focusing on venues like Chicago’s storefront and church theatres, audiences have the opportunity to see new and exciting work that may expand their horizons with unusual and unexpected offerings. Members are then invited to enjoy a self-hosted dinner after the play, discussing the work and catching up with friends new and old. Tiny Theatre takes place every other month, and the plays continue to be selected and organized by Tiny Theatre ambassador, Bobbe Wolf.
Please note: every venue that is selected for Tiny Theatre offers accessible seating. If needed, be sure to indicate your request for accessible seating when purchasing your tickets.
