Immediate Theatre Presents FIVE FLIGHTS by Adam Bock
In Five Flights, an "aerodynamically tight comedy about love and grief" (San Francisco Chronicle), siblings Ed and Adele inherit an enormous aviary from their recently deceased father, which he built to house the soul of his wife, who he believed had transformed into a wren. The children have to decide what to do with this crumbling tribute to eternal love. Sister-in-law Jane wants to tidy it away. Adele's best friend wants it to use for her "Church of the Fifth Day"a screwball religion based around birds. Ed is not sure what he wants for the aviary or in life - even when Tom, a handsome pro hockey player, expresses interest in him. Ricocheting from hilarity to heartbreak, occasionally freewheeling backward in time, and along the way exploring the little-known similarities between hockey and ballet, Five Flights' familial debate includes issues of faith, sexuality, commitment and longing for something just out of reach.

"Adam Bock's flighty comic meditation on faith and grief charms in Immediate Theatre's production."  - Kris Vire, TimeOut Chicago

"The tale feels a little like a Lilli Carré drawing come to life, and Immediate Theatre's Peter Cieply gives it an optimal staging, with strong performances and a marvelous flow of projections by Michael Fernandez." - Tony Adler, Reader
