The Chicago playwright Marisa Wegrzyn (right) is a tough act to follow: After she won the Wasserstein Prize in 2009, the awards committee declared a forfeit in 2010. Don’t miss the local premiere of the drama that broke the mold. But call soon: The clock is ticking.
May 5–June 12 Suppose, instead of the usual circadian rhythms, you had an actual timepiece embedded in your heart that could tell you precisely when and how you would die. Such is the premise of Wegrzyn’s quirky, bloody tale—one that should be well worth watching. Previews May 5–12; $20. Regular run $15–$32. Chicago Dramatists, 1105 W Chicago. chicagodramatists.org.
