Red Rex
By Ike Holter
Directed by Jonathan Berry
January 24 - March 2, 2019

A small theater company moves into an abandoned Chicago storefront. Led by their adventurously thirsty artistic director, they embark on an explosive new play with the hope of finally breaking it big. When the ensemble realizes their source material might not be as original as once assumed, they are thrust into an intense confrontation with residents of their new community, who not only want them out, but will take their story back by any means necessary. Red Rex is the sixth play in Ike Holter's seven part "Rightlynd saga", which also includes Exit Strategy, Prowess, and The Wolf at the End of the Block.

Running Time:  2:15 with 1 intermission
