The next show to move into the Garage, the Steppenwolf Theatre Company's newest and smallest space, will be Lydia Stryk's The House of Lily. Curt Columbus will direct the piece, which will run March 1 through April 1, 2001.

Martha Lavey, whose day job is artistic director of the Chicago company, will star as the title character. Lily has strong beliefs, particularly about love, and follows them without question. That is, until her father moves in and shatters her world view by revealing secrets about his life and his marriage to his now-dead wife. In the wake of this, Lily reexamines her convictions, including her feelings toward her friend, Gina, played by Amy Warren. Amy Morton was originally announced to play Gina, but Morton was needed to repeat her role in the Broadway production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, which begins previews March 16.

Tickets are $10. The Garage is located at 1626 N. Halsted Street in Chicago. For more information, call (312) 335-1650.
