“Making Waves” Akvavit staged reading
September 13, 2019 @ 7:00 pm
Akvavit Theatre is excited to present a staged reading of a new play by Rhea Leman, award-winning Danish playwright and author of Hitler on the Roof at the Swedish American Museum. Transatlantic explores the story of the great Scandinavian mass immigration to the United States at the turn of the last century, juxtaposing the experience of immigrants and Native Americans from long ago with contemporary immigration issues and stories. Ms. Leman will be in Chicago to direct and work with actors to develop the script for one week; this reading will present the results of that work and show the play as a work-in-progress.
