The play, by Chicago playwright Philip Dawkins, concerns three sisters — Nelly, Jenny June, and Gerty Fail — who all died in 1928 after being married to the same man. Failure is a magical, musical fable that traces the sisters’ triumphs and defeats. Set in the Fail family home and clock shop, a rickety two-story building near the Chicago River, this funny, moving, and profoundly wise play reminds us that only love remains in the end.
