Pegasus Players is proud to present the Chicago Premiere of Joan MacLeod’s one-woman show, The Shape of a Girl. Based on true events, The Shape of a Girl will be performed at Pegasus Players, 1145 W. Wilson Avenue in the O'Rourke Center at Truman College, February 26 – April 12, 2009. The official opening night is Monday, March 2, 2009 at 8:00 pm.
Starring Alice Wedoff, this one-woman show deals with the code of silence and tacit complicity surrounding the Reena Vick murder in Canada in 1997 (which inspired the play). Vick was bullied and eventually murdered by a group of teenage classmates in Victoria. The play deals with the fine line that separates this extreme act and the everyday occurrences happening in our schools and communities. Directed by Ilesa Duncan, Alice Wedoff plays Braidie, a fifteen year old girl who takes the audience through her compelling observations and reflections, laced with humor, heartache, and the tough choices of youth.
The Shape of a Girl will be held February 26 to April 12. Previews will be Thursday, Feb. 26, Friday, Feb. 27 and Saturday, Feb. 28 at 8pm, and Sunday, March 1 at 3pm. Opening Night will be Monday, March 2 at 8pm. Performances will be Thursdays through Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 3pm at Pegasus Players, 1145 W. Wilson Avenue in the O'Rourke Center at Truman College, Chicago. Tickets for the preview performances are $15.
