Originating Calendar
Krannert Center
By Henry Wishcamper
Lisa Gaye Dixon, director
 

Henry Wishcamper, member of the Goodman Theatre Artistic Collective, updates his 2007 The Polish Play. Hysterically funny but definitely NSFW, this mash-up of Shakespeare’s Macbeth and Alfred Jarry’s Ubu Roi for this moment in time and today’s political landscape includes puppets, live sound effects, and the whole Polish army. Hold on to your hat for this bawdy, bumpy rollercoaster of a play!

 

When the 2019-20 Krannert Center season was first announced, this production was titled Consider It Not So Deeply. Since that time, playwright Henry Wishcamper elected to change the title to Psh*tter! A Drinking Song for the Year of Our Lord 2020 to better reflect the context and content of the play. Any tickets already purchased titled Consider It Not So Deeply will be honored at the door.

 

Pshitter! A Drinking Song For the Year of our Lord 2020 was developed, in part, with assistance from the Orchard Project (www.orchardproject.com), Ari Edelson, Artistic Director.
