Anna in the Afterlife

What happens when we die? This is a question that has been debated for centuries. Whether it is related to religion or just personal beliefs, there seems to always be more than one answer. Is there really any way to tell which belief is the right one?

Anna in the Afterlife, a play by Richard Engling and directed by Susan Padveen, explores what happens in the afterlife after one has committed suicide. Some Christians say suicide is a one-way ticket to Hell, but not everyone necessarily believes that. This play follows the story of novelist Matthew Harken who momentarily passes over to the other side during a coma. While he is there, he finds the body of a novelist who had committed suicide, Anna Toyevsky, split into three pieces. During his time on the other side, he hears the stories of many souls on the “other side” and tries to uncover the mystery behind Anna’s suicide. Unsure whether he should risk returning to life or remaining dead, this bone-chilling play is definitely one to watch.

Polarity Ensemble Theatre presents Anna in the Afterlife at the Greenhouse Theatre Center from April 22 – May 14. For more details, please click here.

AOMEver wondered how motivational speakers find their motivation? John Cueno and Andrew Thorp wrote a play to answer that very question. How convenient! Cueno and Throp present The Art Of Motivation, an up-close and personal glance into the world of motivational speaking and how two accomplished professionals have dealt with the ups and downs of the industry. The two have brought together a team of talented Chicago speakers to bring the show to life, offering a wide variety of perspectives and experiences accessible for any audience.

Both creators are accomplished individuals in their own right. Cueno is a recent Emmy Award recipient for his work as a writer and director with Punch Films. Thorp has worked as a producer across the city of Chicago for more than five years, and is heavily involved in Thorpedo Production’s casting process, scripting, and auditions. You won’t want to miss out on the wise words they have in store!
