Shattered Globe Theatre, in association with Interrobang Theatre Project, is pleased to welcome back audiences this fall with the Chicago premiere of Chloë Moss’s drama This Wide Night, directed by ITP Artistic Director Georgette Verdin, playing October 8 – November 13, 2021, at Theater Wit, 1229 W. Belmont Ave. in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood. This Wide Night will feature Aila Ayilam Peck+ and Linda Reiter*.

Lorraine, released from prison after twelve years inside, treks to her former cellmate Marie’s new flat. Marie, dodgy and ashamed of their shared past, hesitates to welcome Lorraine back into her life. But no one makes Marie laugh like Lorraine. Can two friends, uniquely bonded by their former circumstances, find belonging in each other once more? This gutsy story of female friendship and winner of the 2009 Susan Smith Blackburn prize is inspired by real accounts of women in a UK prison. This Wide Night holds and humanizes two formerly incarcerated women in an isolated studio that may or may not be equipped for real freedom.

Please note: Theater Wit currently requires all audience members to wear masks and to provide proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test within 48 hours of curtain time. All cast and crew members are fully vaccinated. For additional information on COVID safety guidelines and Theater’s Wit’s ticket refund policy, visit www.theaterwit.org.

Additionally, two performances of This Wide Night will be available for live streaming during the run. Shattered Globe Theatre is closely monitoring the news and data surrounding the Delta variant, and has a plan to go fully virtual if it is not safe at the time of the production for our community and audiences to congregate in person.
