facebook twitter google +1 reddit email


Pride Films and Plays' Chicago premiere production of Daniel MacIvor's His Greatness—inspired by a 'potentially true story' during the declining days of Tennessee Williams—will be performed at the 15th Annual International Dublin Gay Play Festival that will take place May 7-20 in Dublin.

The entire original cast of last fall's production will travel to Dublin and will perform the play May 14-19, with two performances on May 19.

Two special benefit performances will be staged in Chicago to help defray expenses for the company to travel to Dublin and perform at the festival. On Wed., April 18, at 7:30 p.m., Pride Films and Plays will present an "all-star" staged reading of The Women, by Claire Boothe Luce, performed entirely by men. The cast will include Chicago Ald. James Cappelman ( 46th Ward ), David Cerda, Ed Jones, David Zak, Danne W. Taylor, Casey Chapman, Kevin Bishop, MarkleBeau, AK Miller, Manny Ortiz, Christopher Sylvie and Oscar M. Munoz in the Broadway, Pride Arts Center, 4139 N. Broadway.

There will also be one farewell benefit performance of His Greatness on Monday, May 7, at 7:30 p.m. in the Thrust Stage at Stage 773, 1225 W. Belmont Ave.

Admission will be $25-$50 for the April 18 event, and $25-$30 for the May 7 benefit; visit Stage773.com or call 773-327-5252.

Also, those wishing to support the production's trip to Dublin can contribute directly at www.gofundme.com/send-his-greatness-to-dublin .
