News   Goodman Theatre Announces 2015 New Stages Festival Lineup
 
Chicago's Goodman Theatre has announced its 2015 New Stages Festival lineup. Included are new works by Rebecca Gilman, Jordan Harrison and Dael Orlandersmith. The festival will run Oct. 28-Nov. 15 in the Owen Theatre.

The 2015 New Stages Festival will feature three fully staged works, including Octavio Solis' Mother Road, a reimagining of "The Grapes of Wrath"; Charles Smith's Objects in the Mirror, the story of a young Liberian man who "gains a new perspective and life when he loses his home"; and Lauren Yee's King of the Yees, an examination of culture, identity and "what it means to be a Yee."

The festival will also feature four staged readings: Dael Orlandersmith's Lady in Denmark, a "darkly poetic one-woman narrative about the role music plays in shaping a life"; Jordan Harrison's The Amateurs, a "wild and woolly tale of plagues, purpose and the origins of creativity"; Rebecca Gilman's Rödvinsvänster (Red-Wine Leftists: 1977), "a collision of ideologies and realism set in 1977 Gothenburg, Sweden"; and Martin Zimmerman's On The Exhale, "a surprising and emotional examination of society's complex relationship with guns and gun violence."
