The Woman in White

(Thu & Fri at 7:30pm, Sat at 4pm & 8pm, Sun at 4pm)


"Elise Kauzlaric's staging employs clear, creative use of Alan Donahue's scenic design... and her cast is terrific. Lifeline newcomers Bailey and Scrantom make an appealing pair"  –Time Out Chicago

"A mesmerizing mystery about identity... Violence Designer Greg Poljacik orchestrates gasp-worthy incidents with unexpected and authentic fight scenes."  –Chicago Theater Beat

"The heavy-lifting duties rest on the spun-steel shoulders of Lucy Carapetyan as the forthright Marian, whose defiance of Christopher M. Walsh's oily Fosco generates a David-against-Goliath frisson to induce shivers of excitement"  –Windy City Times

Trapped in a loveless marriage and threatened by a conspiracy of ruthless men, young heiress Laura Fairlie faces a future of sorrow and misery. Her only hope lies with her true love, the poor artist Walter Hartright, and her sister Marian Halcombe, both of whom will risk everything to protect her. Without the law, society, or money on their side, Walter and Marian must race against time to free their beloved Laura and uncover the truth behind the mysterious woman in white that shares her face. A dark tale of romance and suspense, in a world premiere adaptation.

     Based on the classic mystery by Wilkie Collins
Adapted by Robert Kauzlaric
Directed by Elise Kauzlaric
