Written by

Strawdog Theatre Company, which is losing its longtime Lakeview home to gentrification, will produce its next season at the Factory Theatre's new space in Rogers Park before relocating to a new permanent home yet to be determined.

Strawdog's three-show slate at the Factory will open with Distance (August 25–October 1), a world premiere by Jerre Dye about a woman with Alzheimer's disease and its impact on the people in her life; Erica Weiss directs. It's followed by a production of Shakespeare's Cymbeline (January 12–February 23), staged by Rob Kauzlaric. A third production, scheduled to run May 11–June 24, 2017, remains to be announced.
