Stay Current with the Pick of the Day: Hellcab

by

-1

In Hellcab, playwright Will Kern explores the thrilling randomness of the whole taxi experience. Originally performed as the unlikely holiday offering Hellcab Does Christmas, the dark comedy introduces all walks (obnoxious sports fans, drunks, druggies, and born-again Christians included) in roughly two dozen vignettes as a Chicago cabby struggles through an endless shift. Revived last year for its 20th anniversary, Kern’s script is a young underdog among iconic Chicago plays such as A Raisin in the Sun and American Buffalo. Stacey Connelly directs Keith Berry, Nico Bonacci, Elizabeth Anne Cave, Kareem Dahab, Taylor Mobley, E.J. Roberts, and Gloria Sanchez-Molina in the AtticRep production, which features strong language, adult situations, and production design by Artpace alum Andrea Caillouet. $10-$25, 8pm Thu-Sat, 2:30pm Sun, The Attic Theatre, Trinity University, 1 Trinity, (210) 999-8524, atticrep.org.
