Strawdog Theatre Company, Chicago’s newest free theater, returns this spring with the world premiere of On The Greenbelt, a serio-comic play that jumps between past and the present, written by ensemble member Karissa Murrell Myers and directed by Jonathan Berry.

On The Greenbelt is an exploration of family, love, memory and the question of “How do we process loss and grief?” Jules saw something terrible in the Idaho hospital the night her mom died, but shell never say what it was. Not to her ex, Olivia, and especially not to her brother, Jake, who keeps trying to convince her to go with him to the Greenbelt to spread their moms ashes with their father, Alan. But try as she might, Jules cant shake the memories of the past that haunt her like a gin-soaked hangover, and as the day unravels the past events surrounding her mothers death come to light.
