With "From the Heart," playwright Jessica Puller weaves together O. Henry's "The Gift of the Magi" and Truman Capote's "A Christmas Memory" to remind us that the perfect gift is one that comes from the heart. Since it was first published in 1905, O. Henry's "Magi" has charmed readers with the bittersweet story of how a young couple with little money meets the challenge of buying each other Christmas presents. Capote's 1956 short story is a poignant autobiographical vignette -- a boy's remembrance of cherished holiday rituals shared with a favorite elderly cousin. Puller combines these familiar stories about love and loss for this world premiere performance, directed by Molly Mattaini. [less-]

Based on the shipwrecked Rouse Simmons, "The Christmas Schooner" is a powerful, moving story with an exquisite score by Chicago favorites John Reeger (book) and Julie Shannon (music and lyrics).

Actress Linda Reiter commands the stage in this fierce drama by Irish author Colm Tóibín that turns the iconic mother of Jesus Christ into a fully realized, flesh-and-blood woman. Award-winning author Colm Tóibín first developed the "The Testament of Mary" as a 2011 monologue, then turned it into a highly praised novel, and now this new work, nominated for a 2013 Tony Award for Best New Play, focusing on an older Mary several years after the Crucifixion. Having been sheltered by the writers of the Gospels, she's nevertheless torn by grief and self-doubt as she gives her narrative of the last days in the life of her son, Jesus. Don't miss the Midwest premiere of this lyrical and thought-provoking work that "The New York Times" hailed as "beautiful and daring." [less-]
