Big Lake Big City
Detective Bass can’t catch a break: his boss is a hard-ass, his partner’s a knucklehead, his wife’s a cheat and now he’s chasing a perp who has a screwdriver in his head. An eclectic set of shady characters—crooked coroners, a TV-personality doctor, a femme fatale, and one extraordinarily valuable sculpture—run roughshod through a hilarious maze of double-crosses and double-identities in this love letter to the underbelly of the Windy City.
Directed by David Schwimmer and written by playwright Keith Huff ( A Steady Rain, House of Cards, Mad Men ), this dark comedy reveals the Second City in all its gritty and goofy glory.
Get an experience of the event with photos from the pre-show lecture and post-show talkback with cast members Thomas J. Cox, Katherine Cunningham, Anthony Fleming III, Eddie Martinez, J. Salomé Martinez, Wendy Mateo and Philip R. Smith.
