Jackalope Theatre, a company founded and led by alumni of the Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department, presents the Midwest premiere of the critically acclaimed play Ideation, by Aaron Loeb. This darkly comic psychological suspense thriller concerns a group of corporate consultants working together on a mysterious and ethically ambiguous project. As the lines between right and wrong are blurred, these characters must navigate the cognitive dissonances and moral dilemmas to decide for themselves if everything is as it really seems.
The cast includes Columbia College Theatre Department alumnus Kaiser Ahmed ’08, graduate of the Theatre Department’s Theatre Directing program. Ahmed is also Jackalope’s co-founder and associate artistic director.
The play is directed by former Columbia College Theatre Department student Gus Menary, Jackalope’s artistic director. His production team includes Columbia College Theatre Department alum Claire Sangster ’12, a graduate of the Theatre Design BA progam (master electrician), as well Sabina Dzelilovic, a current Columbia student in the Theatre Directing BFA program (dramaturg), and Sasha Smith, a former student in the Theatre Department’s Acting BA program (fight choreographer).
Ideation runs May 10-June 17 at Broadway Armory Park, 5917 N. Broadway, in Chicago’s Edgewater Theatre District. For tickets, click here.
