Sideshow Theatre Company has announced its three-play slate for the 2015–16 season, to include Chicago's first looks at playwrights Hansol Jung and David Jacobi and a Chicago premiere by Christopher Chen.
The season opens with No More Sad Things (November 15–December 20), a world-premiere comedy by Korean-born Jung about a pair of drifting souls who connect in Hawaii. Elly Green directs.
In the spring, Marti Lyons stages the premiere of Mai Dang Lao (March 6–April 10), a drama set in the fast food industry by Jacobi, currently an MFA student at University of California–San Diego.
Then Seth Bockley directs the Chicago premiere of Caught (May 29–July 3), a multilayered comedy about art, China and the nature of truth by Chen (The Hundred Flowers Project). All three productions will be staged at Victory Gardens Theater.
Also on tap for Sideshow is a commercial remount this summer of last summer's Stupid Fucking Bird (July 23–August 30), moving downstairs to the Victory Gardens mainstage.
