L.I.P. Service is pleased to present Ellen Fairey’s touching and beautiful play Graceland, presented at The Firehouse Theatre, November 2-18, 2017
Chicago's oldest cemetery is the backdrop for Graceland, the story of four lonely Chicagoans whose lives collide one August weekend while the Blue Angels airshow is in town. As fighter jets buzz the skies from dusk till dawn, estranged brother and sister, Sam and Sara, try to make sense of their father's recent suicide. Sara's one-night stand with Joe, an aging lothario, brings further trouble in the form of Joe's mercurial teenage son, Miles.
A critic from The New York Times wrote, "Ms. Fairey has a keen understanding of the way family relationships can evolve into delicate dances in which the unsaid takes on far more importance than anything articulated."
