Exit 63 Theatre presents the Chicago premiere of Henry Murray's Treefall


Beyond the end of the world, where trees are dying and sunlight must not be allowed to touch human skin, three teenaged boys survive by reinventing a culture they never really knew.  They cling to the shreds of civility by playing Daddy, Mommy and Junior, but the game has worn quite thin.  And just when it seems that things can't get any worse, a stranger arrives with a terrible secret that changes everything.  Named one of the ten best plays of 2009 by LA Weekly, TREEFALL is a tragicomic exploration of gender identity and the meaning of family.


Directed by Artistic Director Connor Baty.  Featuring Andrew Garcia, Shea Petersen, Matt Schutz and Kirra Silver.  The production team includes Associate Artistic Director Nora Lise Ulrey, Stage Management by Anna Klos, Lighting Design by David Goodman-Edberg, Sound Design by Teddy Gales, Fight Choreography by Bill Gordan, Set Design by Connor Baty, Bill Gordon and Jeff Simpson, Costume Design by Bailey Castle, Marketing by Ben Mills, Artwork by David Hagen.

90 minutes. No intermission. Mature audiences only.
