"The amazingly honest performances,
rich in nuance and depth, make Our Lady of the
Underpass a most enticing and wholly
engaging theatrical work. See this
well written and terrifically acted drama. It’ll
test your faith." -- Tom Williams, Chicago
The remount of the critically-acclaimed Jeff-Nominated
2009 production marks the 5-year anniversary
of the Holy sighting under the bridge.
The same week that Rome announced a new Pope,
a woman driving home from work spotted an image
of the Virgin Mary on a discolored wall of the
Fullerton Avenue underpass. Inspired by real
life interviews, playwright Tanya Saracho renders
the voices of those who were drawn to that wall,
exploring issues of faith and desire in present
day Chicago. Listen
live to an interview on Vocolo 89.5 FM.
Tanya Saracho returns to 16th
Street where her play Kita y Fernanda garnered a Jeff-Nomination for Best New Work.
She is the Co-Founder of Teatro Luna, Chicago’s
All-Latina Theater Ensemble.
Thursday & Friday performances are followed
by post-show dialogues.
Running time 95 minutes. No intermission.
