FEBRUARY 16 — MARCH 24, 2018

SIX CORNERS

WORLD PREMIERE  
Edgerton Foundation New Play Award

Written by: Keith Huff
Directed by: Gary Griffin

Penned by Emmy Award nominee Keith Huff (Broadway’s A Steady Rain) and directed by Gary Griffin (Broadway’s The Color Purple): late one night, two burnt-out violent crimes unit detectives try their damnedest to close the puzzling murder of a CTA employee. What should be a simple open-and-shut case, however, evolves into a horrifying mystery and unearths a legacy of violence stretching back years. To learn more, read our Artistic Director’s note and Backstage Guide.
