Powers New Voices Festival Faceless

Summary

Faceless

By Selina Fillinger
Directed by Jennifer Chambers

Sunday, January 20 at 4:00 p.m.

Susie Glenn, a white 18-year-old from the Chicago suburbs, was arrested at O’Hare International Airport for conspiring with ISIS. Recent Harvard Law grad and practicing Muslim Claire Fathi has been brought on to prosecute. Inspired by real court cases, Fillinger’s crackling drama looks at two women fighting for justice in a world gripped by fear.

A line for standby seating will form 30 minutes before each performance of the Powers New Voices Festival.  Based on ticket-holder attendance, those standing in the standby line may be seated.  Seating is based on seat availability and is not guaranteed.  Latecomers with tickets are also not guaranteed admittance.
