  • BALL in Chicago

    David Zak, Artistic Director, Bailiwick Repertory, would like to offer discounted tickets to forum members interested in seeing "BALL."
    One Man. One Ball. One Hour. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll want to perform a self-exam.

    Far from the world of yellow bracelets and pink ribbons, BALL is the story of a young man and his quirky and unique struggle against cancer and, more importantly, the Lance Armstrong-dominated cancer narrative. This is not your mother's illness drama - BALL sees all of the disgusting parts of cancer not as things which should be changed into things beautiful or inspirational. Instead, the sperm bank, the catheters, and the hair loss take center stage in all their glory, in a manner which is irreverent, honest, and, ultimately, healing.

    Over the last two years, BALL has been performed in various cities across the country, including Detroit, New York City, Philadelphia, Boston, and Montreal, and it is now having its first full theatrical run, here in Chicago. BALL was the recipient of the 2004 Hopwood Drama Award from the University of Michigan Ann Arbor, and Brian Lobel is the recipient of a 2006 CAAP Grant, for New and Emerging Artists, from the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs.
