Ever In The Glades
Produced by Virginia Wadsworth Wirtz Center for the Performing Arts at Northwestern University from Evanston, IL
Written by Laura Schellhardt
Directed by Rives Collins
On an isolated island deep in the heart of the Everglades, five teenagers struggle to survive in a land where the adults are as dangerous as the gators. When one of the kids returns from juvenile detention to help the rest escape to the mainland, it seems their prayers have been answered. There’s only one problem: they need a boat, and they need it before the adults catch wind of their plan and end it—or end them.
Ever In The Glades makes its highly anticipated return after its breakout workshop performance at the Kennedy Center’s New Visions/New Voices theater festival in 2016. Bringing a more mature element to this season of performances for young audiences, the play begs the question: what is the current generation’s responsibility to the next, and what happens if we fail them?
Most enjoyed by age 12 and up. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
Stay after the 1:30 p.m. performance on June 9 for a free Kids’ Chat!
Following the performance, audience members can ask questions and hear engaging stories in an up-close-and-personal talk with some of the artists.
