Next for Playwright Bruce Norris: More Time Traveling

PlayBlog   Next for Playwright Bruce Norris: More Time Traveling
 
Clybourne Park, the one Bruce Norris play that escaped a world-premiere at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre Company (to enjoy a successful first-run at Off-Broadway's Playwrights Horizons), actually took place in a fictitious Chicago neighborhood — in two different time periods. And so will his next opus, A Parallelogram, which reverts to the Steppenwolf launching pad July 1-Aug. 29.


"It's about time travel," the tight-lipped Norris let slip — and, no, he promised, a hot tub is not involved. The main character of this "dark, funny" opus is a woman who can see the future and her own fate. Should she accept it or try to change it?

August: Osage County's Tony-winning Anna D. Shapiro, will direct the piece, as she did Norris' The Pain and the Itch and The Unmentionables.
