Teenage Dick

by Mike Yew

directed by Brian Balcom

Now is the winter of discontent made glorious summer at Roseland High. Theater's most famous disabled character comes to Theater Wit like you've never seen him beforeā€”in the vicious, no-holds barred brutal politics of high school. Richard, picked on because of his cerebral palsy (and his semi-creepy tendancy to monologue), is determined to become class president.

But the road to power is never smooth, and Richard must decide: is it better to be loved or feared?

Join us for the Chicago premiere of Mike Lew's devastatingly funny, sharply written new play about perception, disability and the lengths we're willing to go to rise above our station in life.

Opens March 2020
