UPCOMING 2017!


BESS WOHL'S CONTINUITY PREMIERES AT "NEW STAGES" AT THE GOODMAN THEATRE IN CHICAGO!

By Bess Wohl
Directed by Annie Tippe
Sept 22 - Oct 8, 2017


On a soundstage in a desert in New Mexico meant to look like a melting ice sheet in Greenland, things are running way behind schedule. As over-qualified-but-under-recognized director Maria tries to salvage her big-budget thriller about climate change and eco-terrorism, her cast and screenwriter waste precious minutes of daylight with error-ridden mis-takes and behind-the-scenes drama. Bess Wohl’s startlingly funny new play examines what is worth saving and what isn’t—especially when we’re facing the end of the world.
