The Iroquois at The Raven Theatre

Posted on by Jaela Hall Posted in Around Town, Explore Chicago, Theatre | Comments Off

Chicago playwright Chris Hodak and freelance director Jaclynn Jutting collaborate in this slice-of-life snapshot about an overburdened woman who’s faced with the task of caring for her elderly mother. Through humor, compassion, and engaging characters, The Iroquois explores the dilemma of relocating parents with deteriorating health to nursing homes.


What began as a ten minute play in Chicago Dramatists’ Natural Disasters has gown into  a production worthy of placing as  a semi-finalist at the 2013 O’Neill National Playwrights Conference. What an evolution! Raven Theatre is ecstatic about this fully staged workshop being a part of its [Working Title] New Play Development Series. With such a successful piece, the theatre hopes to continue  providing its company with the opportunity to nurture new plays while offering an incomparable laboratory space for playwrights, directors, and actors to experiment with and showcase their work.

Tickets for this event can be purchased by calling 773.338.2177 or by visiting the Raven Theatre official website.
