When They Came 

By Resident Playwright 

MT Cozzola 

Directed by Jeremy Aluma

In When They Came, the citizens of a typical American town recover from the loss of a group of aliens who had come to them in need of a new home. The citizens defend their actions, interrogate each other, and reveal their deepest hopes and fears as they seek to explain, as a community, how their hospitable intentions resulted in disaster.

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!
