The World Premiere of Seven Days at Sea by By Martha Hansen and Directed By Margaret Knapp

“I wrote this, my first play, as I feel older women’s voices are rarely heard and it has been a humbling experience. As one friend suggested, it’s like building a plane while flying,” said Hansen. “I am learning […] from all the people I have been in contact with, especially the Chicago artistic community. On days I’ve felt I might not be able to go on, their enthusiasm and encouragement have buoyed me up and allowed me to continue to complete this play.” 

Light and Sound Productions is proud to announce the world premiere of Seven Days at Sea, written by Martha Hansen and directed by Margaret Knapp, May 19 – June 5, at The Edge Theater, 5451 N. Broadway Street. 

Synopsis: five older women’s lives intersect on a lesbian cruise ship. While on the cruise, the women confront truths about themselves and each other reflecting a journey through age, illness and renewed sexuality. 

This show is recommended for mature audiences. 

Press opening is Friday, May 20 at 7 p.m. The performance schedule is Thursdays – Saturdays at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. Tickets are $20 – $40 and are on sale at
