The World Premiere of BETTER, by Amy Giacalone
Josh and Steven are roommates, best friends, and 20-somethings whose lives are upset when Steven's brother Brian's recent break-up forces them all to reconsider how far they've come. Better follows Josh, Steven, and Brian on a quest to get better. At anything. They set goals and start projects, but it isn't long before they're completely
derailed by screaming exes, nosy little sisters, and newfound crushes. Or maybe they're getting back on track. Funny, quick-witted, and unapologetically heartwarming, Better explores the treacherous waters of our everyday relationships and what it actually takes to get better.
Bartleby Productions is proud to present "Better" as its inaugural show. Company members include Joe Giovannetti, Sarah Nelson, Wayne Giacalone, Amy Giacalone, and Kristina Carr. Recent projects involving two or more members include Akvavit Theatre's "Kokkola" and Six Hours Short's "Chester and the Unbearable Burden Parts I and II." Family and friends who have been working together for nearly a decade,
Bartleby Productions is the perfect company to bring this cheerful rumination on (long-term, short-term, romantic, platonic) relationships to Chicago.
