  • Idle Muse Theatre Company's season eleven, which features plays exploring women achieving self-definition in a world that tries to define them in relationship to the men around them, concludes with the Midwest premiere of The Veil written by playwright Conor McPherson directed by guest artist Ann Kreitman. The Veil plays August 17 - September 17 at The Edge Theater, 5451 N Broadwayin Chicago. Tickets are available now through IdleMuse.org.

    "There's a sense of the supernatural in this play on a number of levels. There's a dealing with ancient folklore and there's the more traditional haunted house. There are characters being haunted, yearning for things they just can't have. There's the echos of trauma. Although the women in this play are seen by the men as having this sort of special gift, perhaps they're just dealing with the chaos men have caused in their lives. The play rests on a fault line between what's real and what isn't," said playwright Conor McPherson. The Veil had its world premiere in 2011 at The National Theatre under McPherson's direction.
