The Displaced
By Resident Playwright Isaac Gomez 

Directed by Jo Cattell

Foley by Carolyn Hoerdemann

MarĂ­sa and Lev have just moved into their new Pilsen apartment in hopes of rekindling a spark that's long been extinguished. While looking for the circuit breaker in the attic, a mysterious coconut appears, leftover from the previous tenants with a dark history inside it.  The Displaced explores the wake of pain and yearning left behind when gentrification forces people out of their homes and the kind of vengeance that can come from it.

This reading is in conjunction with a CORE residency at American Theatre Company (Will Davis, Artistic Director).

About the Saturday Series

Every Saturday afternoon at 2:00 PM (except for holiday weekends), Chicago Dramatists hosts a Saturday Series event in our theatre. Most Saturday Series events are public readings of plays-in-progress.

All plays read in the Saturday Series are directed, rehearsed, and presented with minimal staging. After each reading, the audience members are invited to fill out written response sheets and to join in a moderated post-reading discussion.

We hope you will join us for this Saturday Series event!
