Come join Chicago-Step Up Productions launch of the new comedy, Dead Accounts! Written by playwright Theresa Rebeck and directed by Jason Gerace, this comedic production focuses on themes of greed, small town values and the loyalty of family.
Jack has returned to his hometown of Cincinnati after spending several years in New York without telling his family. Upon his return, his mother and sister are demanding answers to his whereabouts while he was gone. Jack is soon consumed with questions: Is he in trouble? Where is his not-so-nice wife? Where did all of that money come from? Will Jack’s family soon know the answers, or will they continue to be left in the dark?
Partial proceeds from Dead Accounts will go towards a partner charity called Imerman Angels, a cancer support organization. Donation is a part of Step Up Productions’s mission and they donate to organizations around Chicago that support issues which are highlighted in its performances.
