Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department faculty member Barbara Robertson stars in the world premiere of Julie Jensen’s drama Winter, running January 7-February 11 at Rivendell Theatre Ensemble, 5779 N. Ridge, Chicago. Robertson, a veteran Chicago theatre artist and winner of eight Joseph Jefferson Awards (Chicago’s top theatrical prize) for her acting, plays Annis, a retired professor and poet, who is slowly losing herself to dementia and seeks to end her life on her own terms at a time when she can still recognize herself. Inspired by Margaret Pabst Battin’s story “Robeck,” Winter is a searing, compassionate, and often very funny examination of the end of life—and the unconventional path one woman takes to get there.
Rivendell Theatre Ensemble is Chicago’s only Equity theatre dedicated to producing new work with women at the core.
