From The Chicago Sun Times:
The Hypocrites are commissioning writers Lavina Jadhwani and Rohina Malik to create three new plays that reflect the company’s mission. Jadhwani will adapt the classic Sanskrit drama, “Shakuntala “by Kalidasa, while Malik’s new work is inspired by Syrian musicians facing the current international refugee crisis.
The season will be presented at The Den Theatre, 1329 N. Milwaukee, with the exception of “The House of Martin Guerre,” which will be staged at Stage 773, 1225 W. Belmont.
