An esteemed audience said:
Slaughter City, Karen Fort's directorial debut at the Prop Thtr,is a richly layered, mysteriously haunted portrayal of the timeless condition of the working poor. While the Kentucky born and raised author Naomi Wallace teases the audience with humor and spices the script with sex, she touches us much deeper with a pair of spellbinding, transcendent characters locked in a sublime dance of demonic mysticism from which there is no escape. One is reminded of Ray Bradbury's "October People" from Something Wicked This Way Comes".
 
The loathsomeness of the workplace is the outcome of senior management's callous attitude toward labor, which in turn causes a hilarious compensatory degradation of senior management's character marvelously overacted by the wonderful Nick Leininger, who exhibits much more range than I am willing to put into print.
 
But it is Sharon Daniella Gopfert in the role of the scab Cob that one cheers for, the girlfriends Maggot (Stephanie Sullivan) and Roach (Kyra Morris) that claim our empathy, and Tuck (Lee Peters) who follows through with his own private moral mimicking of labor's misery and retains his humanity even as a member of management. Tuck gives my favorite speech in the play, I felt myself glowing when he spoke of his hands. And I will not leave out College Boy, Brandon (Mitch Salm). I attended the play with 5 ladies, and he definitely made an impression on them.
 
Go see this play. It is tightly knit at a leisurely pace, with multiple messages and an actor or two you would not want to miss.

A great deal for this mesmerizing performance of a masterful play by Athol Fugard by the Bluebird Arts http://www.goldstar.com/events/chicago-il/hello-and-goodbye-tickets
Award-winning South African playwright Athol Fugard's family drama tells the explosive story of an estranged brother and sister reunited after 15 years apart. Johnny stayed at home to look after their father, a former railway worker whose leg was blown off in an explosion, while Hester, who's been living 1,000 miles away, returns home for a quick 'hello and goodbye.' The two siblings churn through their once-promising past to try to comprehend th...

"Unrequited is a probe to find out what happens if the usual framing around socialism and capitalism is turned on its head---that rather than portray them as adversarial enemies, I portray them as embedded lovers.

Unrequited is an 'acoustic play': a play where the soundingess of the sentence constructs (gesture, pitch,inflection, timbre, rhythm, loudness and softness) act as antagonist and protagonist.
