The Night Alive
by Hyde Park Theatre

Jul. 09 - Aug. 08, 2015

From the playwright who gave us earlier HPT hits such as St. Nicholas, The Good Thief, and Port Authority: a play that the New York Times called "extraordinary. The play can only be called transcendent." The Wall Street Journal called The Night Alive "a stunner. So fresh and full of vital poetry that you'll cling to every word." Time Out New York called it "a spellbinding and absolutely gorgeous new play by one of the true poets of the theater."
The production stars Robert Fisher (Fixing King John, The Lieutenant of Inishmore), Tom Green (The Christians, Port Authority), Joey Hood (The Christians, The Aliens), Jessica Hughes (The Christians, Middletown), and Ken Webster (The Christians, Port Authority). Ken Webster directs.



The kindness of strangers comes with complications. Tommy is getting by—kind of: he is crashing in his uncle’s ramshackle house in Dublin, dodging his estranged family, and plotting a parade of get-rich-quick schemes with his buddy Doc. Then one day he defends a destitute woman against a violent attack, and a fragile glimmer of hope appears as Tommy tends to her in his run-down room. From the author of The Weir, Shining City and The Seafarer comes this compelling new drama—by turns funny and frightening, but always deeply human.

-- Steppenwolf Theatre, for its production of September - November, 2014
