A Town Called Progress


On a dusty road between Backwards and Conspiratorial lies a town called Progress; where Ida, the mayor, hopes to create a utopia where the women are on top. Only – the water pump doesn’t work, the tumbleweeds have eyes, and the new citizens have other notions. Vivian wants to make a baby, Slim wants to make money, and Weed is up for anything as long as there is bacon. Chicago playwright Trina Kakacek’s modern day fable explores the stories we tell ourselves about gender, economics, and family in this world premiere comedy.

$21 seniors, $16 students/military
