Powers New Voices Festival Welcome to Matteson


Welcome to Matteson

By Inda Craig-Galván
Directed by Delicia Turner Sonnenberg

Saturday, January 19 at 4:00 p.m.

A suburban couple hosts a welcome-to-the-neighborhood dinner party for their new neighbors—a couple forcibly relocated from Chicago's roughest housing project—and it’s anything but welcoming. A dark comedy about reverse gentrification and how we deal with the other when the other looks just like us.

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.
