In Eugene Ionescos’ 1948 one act we meet the Smiths who are having the Martins over for dinner. By the end of the evening it’s apparent to everyone that meaningful conversation is lost in our modern society.

Featuring Christopher Cintron (The Fire Chief), Brandon Kruse (Mr. Smith), Colin Milroy (Mr. Martin), Mechelle Moe (Mrs. Martin), Julie Paparella (Mrs. Smith), Carrie Vann (Mary) and Otis Gaybuttons (Eugene Ionesco)

Creative team includes: Brandon Kruse (Producer)

Cafe Voltaire, 3231 N. Clark

“If Ionesco could wander into the venerable basement of Cafe Voltaire, he would doubtless be delighted to see his nihilistic post-war experiment in the hands of The Hypocrites…” – Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
