All Our Tragic (Remount)

It’s back and the critics love it.

★★★★ from Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune


“…a watershed moment for off-Loop theater. By whatever alchemy, it serves the greatest collection of stories ever written – adds to them, modernizes them, makes them feel fresh, forces you to see them both strange and familiar.”


Highly Recommended by The Chicago Sun Times


Graney has sharpened and clarified the show,primarily through his collaboration with set designer Tom Burch, who has maintained the weighty, Aegean-hued doors of his original set but shifted from an alley configuration to a thrust stage that focuses attention (with help from lighting master Jared Moore) with far greater intensity. Costume designer Alison Siple’s work is, if possible, even more glorious this time around..”


And New City says, 


“All Our Tragic” turns away from death and embraces life. It celebrates the messy, awful, angry, passionate, broken people who all loved something they had no business loving. Like any good Greek tragedy, it achieves catharsis.”
