The event also includes a "two-act" halftime show performed by each company, including young theatre ambassadors from Goodman Theatre’s Youth Arts Council.
Admission to the game is free, but spectators are encouraged to bring donations for either of the two supported charities: Breaking Bread, one of Greater Chicago Food Depository’s partner soup kitchens; or Bin Donated, a non-profit organization located in Lincoln Park that distributes toiletries to Chicago-area shelters providing refuge for seniors, women, teens and victims of abuse.
The football game will be held just north of Chicago’s Diversey Driving Range (141 W. Diversey).
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
