The Guest
By Resident Playwright Zina Adrienne Camblin 

Directed by Erin Kraft

Featuring: TBA cast

This is the most important day of Marla's life. Well, aside from the day she found Jesus. As she preps her rural Missouri home and the rest of the family for a special visitor, a storm is brewing outside, made even more apparent by the visitors arrival and disruption of the family dynamic. The visitor is Marla's biological bi-racial daughter Jessica, who she has not seen since the day Jesus told her to give her up for adoption on the day of her birth. Despite Marla's attempt at keeping everything rainbows and sunshine with finger foods and a family bonding game of Taboo, Jessica's reason for the visit prompts questions that trudge up things about the past Marla nor her family are ready to face. 

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!
