Nothing Without a Company ( NWaC ) has announced its 13th season, "COMMUNITY."
The new season features two plays: the world premiere of The Soccer Player in the Closet, written by Ryan Oliveira and directed by Christopher Sylvie; and the Chicago premiere of Pakalolo Sweet, written by Hannah Ii-Epstein and directed by Rachel Slavick. Both plays focus on underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, and are written by Chicago artists who belong to those groups.
Also in the season are a 24 Hour Play Fest; NWaC's first-ever gala, "Wonder Ball;'' and a New World Play Festival.
The Soccer Player in the Closet will run Feb. 14-March 17, 2019, at Christy Webber Landscapes, 2900 W. Ferdinand St.. Pakalolo Sweet will run Sept. 18-Oct. 5, 2019, at Berger Park Cultural Center, 6205 N. Sheridan Rd. The 24 Hour Play Fest is scheduled for May 2019, and the gala will take place on June 1, 2019. More information on the New World Play Festival will be announced on a later date.
