RED SUMMER

This new dramatic musical takes place during the Chicago race riots of 1919. Two WWI soldiers – one black, one white–return from the battlefields of Europe only to find themselves caught in the violence of a Chicago that is struggling to accommodate the Great Migration, the return of WWI veterans, a downturn in the economy & long-standing ethnic tensions. Having fought on the same side in The Great War, they are now pitted against each other as their friends, family & neighbors wage block-by-block warfare & the city’s ethnic enclaves rage & burn. One hundred years later, the same issues simmer & smolder in every metropolitan area in the country. 9/24: 7:30PM; 9/25: 2PM
