The Gift Theatre is proud to announce the upcoming world premiere of Dirty by Andrew Hinderaker, the Joseph Jefferson-nominated writer and director of Suicide, Incorporated and I Am Going to Change the World. In an incisive look at misplaced societal priorities, a young husband finds he can no longer stomach his lucrative but soul-deadening career. When he and his pregnant wife concoct a business plan that will make them millions while allowing them to help those in need, he believes he's discovered his calling. So why does everyone think his new venture is viler than the last? A blend of satirical humor, Hendrix, and hardcore porn, Dirty explores philanthropy and family values in this cutthroat country we call home.
Dirty will run from September 13 to November 18, 2012, at The Gift Theatre, 4802 N. Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago. Performances are Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30, and Sunday matinees at 2:30.
