A SPECIAL COLLABORATION IN ADDITION TO OUR SEASON
Directed by sandi zielinski
A Staged Reading December 3, 4, 5, 6
As this election season shifts into gear, patrons can be a part of a conversation centered on the importance of citizens to stay active and involved in the political process and the responsibility they hold to elect men and women to positions of power.
A collaboration with Illinois State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance MFA program, and a special project by MFA candidate Joey Banks, and directed by Sandi Zielinski, ALLIANCE OF BRATS is filled with ISU MFA actors and many of Heartland’s fine actors.
The adapted play takes place at an Iowa Caucus, present day, with opportunities for the audience to interact.
Adapted from a new translation of Henrik Ibsen’s THE LEAGUE OF OUR YOUTH – a largely forgotten, but prophetic political send-up of the 1860’s Norwegian politics – ALLIANCE OF BRATS contemporizes Ibsen’s well-made comedy of errors.
Greed, ambition, situational ethics…What could be more current?
