The Last Days of Wonder tells the poignant story of an ailing mother and her two grown daughters as they struggle to cope with the reality of their mother’s condition. Anyone who has cared for an ailing parent, or who has thought about that day coming, will relate to this moving story. You can see a sneak peek of the opening scene by clicking here.

Last Days will be followed by the festival’s second play, Falling Into Macy, a one-hour story that deals with love and all it’s many complexities. The play revolves around two couples, one falling out of love, the other never quite falling into love, and the mysterious character Macy who tries to help them both. Who, or what, is Macy? Come to the show to figure it out for yourself. Here’s a sneak peek of that show.
Plays take place at the theater in Northminster Church. 2515 Central Park Avenue in Evanston. If you can’t make Saturday, we have a Sunday matinée at 3:30 and shows every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through March 26. Buy your tickets today.
