None Too Fragile's Boogieban Open at Chicago Dramatists!

Boogieban, by DC Fidler, explores the lasting affects of war upon two soldiers of different eras. Together, the two men launch on parallel journeys of the heart that will change them forever.

"We know how to send our young to war. We know how to welcome them back with parades, garlands, and trumpets. We have never known how to bring home their hearts and souls." ~DC Fidler, Playwright

Opening at Chicago Dramatists on August 8th and closing August 31st, Boogieban will be given 16 performances in Chicago before traveling to New York City for the month of September. Chicago Dramatists Theatre is located at 1105 W. Chicago Ave, Chicago Il, 60642. Tickets are $35 and can be found at nonetoofragile.com. For any other inquiries, please contact the box office at 330.962.5547 or email productions@nonetoofragile.com

Boogieban received its World Premiere at none too fragile theatre in Akron, OH, in November of 2018, with support from the Knight Arts Challenge, a program of The Knight Foundation. Addressing the topic of PTSD, Boogieban, by DC Fidler, quickly became the most-awarded     production of 2018 in the region.
