Clockwise Theatre mounts the world première production of
A Fine Line
By Rob Winn Anderson, directed by Andrea J. Dymond
An exploration of family, gender, and making peace with oneself, A Fine Line is a poignant, funny mash-up of life, death, and romance novels. Installation artist D. Garfinkel has spent an entire life – a life that is almost over - dancing the fine line between man and woman, joy and sorrow, acceptance and rejection, and is on a final, urgent quest to reconnect one last time with his now-grown foster son. A world première.
Written by Rob Winn Anderson and directed by Andrea J. Dymond, A Fine Line features Doug McDade (Gurnee) in the tour-de-force role of D. Garfinkel. The managing director of acclaimed Shattered Globe Theatre, McDade is an award winning stage and film actor, director, and acting coach throughout the region. The rest of the A Fine Line cast features Kevin M. Costello (Chicago), Adrian Garcia (Chicago), Anatole Odolant (Chicago), and Matt Wilson (Chicago). A Fine Line runs April 11th-May 4th. Fridays and Saturdays at 8PM, Sundays at 7PM.

More Details on the Great New Play Reading Series:
The genesis of the program was Clockwise Theatre's participation in the Dramatists Guild national conference this past August. Meeting hundreds of playwrights at the top of their game re-energized our commitment to new work and the living-and-writing playwright. With preference given to local and area playwrights, Clockwise brings together professional actors who work with a director for one rehearsal and then the following week, the play is read aloud in front of the audience. Like radio theatre but with the opportunity to watch the actors, The Great New Plays Reading Series is a fun, casual, entertaining way to spend a Sunday evening. After the reading, there will be a chance to meet the playwright, actors, and directors, as well as participate in a discussion of the play.
Clockwise Theatre is at 221 North Genesee Street, right next door to the historic Genesee Theatre. Free to the public (with a suggested donation of $5) there is ample, free street parking. For more information, call 847-775-1500
