the things we keep.

After six successful years at Shakespeare on the Ridge, the Arc Expands its Evanston season with this exciting World Premiere play about family, art, and repressed emotions.

A locally famous collage artist sifts through the contents of her attic at the end of her life, revealing a family history rife with hidden turmoil. As her family returns home to settle her estate, old wounds are unearthed that were thought to be packed away. When emotions are archived like pieces of paper, what beauty could be salvaged from the remnants?

Featuring. Teddy Boone*, Joe Flynn*, Adrienne Matzen and Kirsten D’Aurelio

Stage Manager Adam Greye, Assistant Director Daniel Sappington, Set Designer Alec Long, Costume Designer Megan Turner, Lighting Designer Jason Hiett, Sound Designer Matt Reich
