Glessner House Museum will host two performances of the celebrated play Ten Dollar House Saturday, May 13 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, May 14 at 3 p.m., 1800 S. Prairie Avenue in Chicago's South Loop neighborhood.
In this true story of love and historic preservation set in Depression-era Wisconsin, a London-based decorator and a local drifter fall in love as they restore a dilapidated stone cottage. With a "gay marriage" that hides in plain sight, Bob Neal and Edgar Hellum create Pendarvis house, an improbable business venture that transforms the town of Mineral Point. The play received rave reviews during its run at the Piccolo Theatre in Evanston in 2016 as part of Pride Films and Plays.
Tickets are $25 per person and may be purchased at www.glessnerhouse.org or by calling 312-326-1480. The museum is easily accessible by taking the #3 or #4 bus on Michigan Avenue to Cullerton Street.
