At Remy Bumppo's request, the theater is being kept at 65 degrees for performer comfort in their period costumes so you may want to bring a sweater or light jacket to the performance. Remy Bumppo staff will be providing blankets for those patrons who find the temperature too chilly.

At the dawn of the 20th century, the independent-minded Schlegel sisters seek to change the world. E.M. Forster’s beloved classic novel about three different families whose lives collide is now an enthralling world premiere adaptation by Chicago playwright Douglas Post. Experience their journey as they search for love, purpose, and connection against the the tide of class, money, and sex.
