The Princess, the Minstrel, and the Rabid Bat

We are excited to partner with the Chicago Parks District's Night Out in the Parks Program to remount this original play, written and directed by company member Ned Baker.

This pop-up production will set up shop in the city’s green spaces, and combine song, sword fights, mystery, and adventure to weave an enchanting hour of theatre that can be shared free of charge by anyone who might wander up.
