Chicago, IL - Casting for the Chicago Premiere of AFTERGLOW, an off-Broadway hit from 2017 exploring the emotional, intellectual, and physical connections between three men and the broader implications within their relationships, has been announced by David G. Zak, the company's Executive Director who is directing the production. Rich Holton ( SEX WITH STRANGERS at Citadel Theatre ) and Jacob Barnes ( URINETOWN at Red Barn Summer Playhouse and A COMEDY OF TENORS with Actors Theatre of Indiana ) will play Josh and Alex, a married couple in an open relationship. The two invite another man, Darius, ( Jesse Montoya of HURRICANE DAMAGE at Pride Films and Plays ) to share their bed one night. When a new intimate connection begins to form, all three men must come to terms with their individual definitions of love, loyalty, and trust as futures are questioned, relationships are shaken, and commitments are challenged.

AFTERGLOW played fourteen months, from June 2017 through August 2018, at the off-Broadway Davenport Theatre in New York City. The nationally distributed, LGBT-focused magazine THE ADVOCATE, said it "Penetrates the psyche in a way that many gay men will find relatable. A gritty tale of commitment on the cusp of questioning its boundaries, the incredible acting and intense writing propels the audience's minds and hearts into their emotional plights."

AFTERGLOW will be performed in the 50-seat Buena Theatre of the Pride Arts Center. It will open to the press on Wednesday, March 27 following previews from Friday, March 22; and will play through Sunday, May 4, 2019/
