THE GRIFFIN THEATRE 2017/2018 MAINSTAGE SEASON

All productions are presented at The Den Theatre, 1333 North Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago.

VIOLET
Book and Lyrics by Brian Crawley
Music by Jeanine Tesori
Directed by Scott Weinstein
Music Direction by John Cockerill
November 26, 2017 – January 13, 2018

Based on the short story “The Ugliest Pilgrim” by Doris Betts, this award-winning musical fuses a powerful rock, folk and gospel score. With a ticket, a suitcase and a heart full of expectation, Violet Karl, facially disfigured since childhood, boards a bus and travels across the deep south in 1964 to see if a faith healer can transform her life. Along the way, she forms unlikely friendships with her fellow passengers, who teach her about beauty, love and courage and that it’s the journeys you take in life that help you discover who you are.

April 6 – May 6, 2018 – Presented in Rotating Repertory:
GHOSTS OF WAR – Chicago Premiere!
From the novel by Ryan Smithson
Adapted by Artistic Director William Massolia
Directed by Jason Gerace

Ryan Smithson joined the Army Reserve when he was seventeen. Two years later, he was deployed to Iraq as an Army engineer. In this extraordinary and harrowing adaptation, follow one GI’s tour of duty inside a world that few understand. Based on Smithson’s best-selling novel, this unforgettable story about combat, friendship, fear and a soldier’s commitment to his country peels back the curtain on the realities of war.

LETTERS HOME
Written and Directed by Artistic Director William Massolia

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, this critically lauded production puts the soldier experience in Iraq and Afghanistan front and center by bringing to life war letters written home. Seen by more than 100,000 people in more than 100 cities since its first performance in 2007, the Griffin is proud to have this production come home for Chicago audiences to experience once again.

THE HARVEST – Chicago Premiere!
By Samuel D. Hunter
Directed by Jonathan Berry
July 21 – August 26, 2018

In the basement of a small evangelical church in southeastern Idaho, a group of young missionaries is preparing to go to the Middle East. When one of the missionaries – a young man – has a crisis of faith on his spiritual journey, it reminds us that faith doesn’t come easily, no matter where you look for it.
