Cicada Summer
In a bleak pocket of the urban Midwest, two 13 year olds fall deeply in love. One is a girl, the other a bug. Tangled in adolescent passion, the human teen stumbles treacherously along the journey to independence, the hunt for intimacy, and the struggle to make sense of the mess that comes with change.

Penned by Claire Saxe, directed by Michael Brown and set in a puppet world created by designer Emily Breyer and Mike Oleon, Cicada Summer is a rich physical and visual exploration of the agony and ecstasy of metamorphosis - human and otherwise.

Reccommended for Mature Audiences.

Cast: Peter Andersen, Noah Appelbaum, Kat Christiensen, Jessie Ellingsen, Kathleen Hoil, Hannah Larsen

Crew: Claire Saxe (Playwright), Michael Brown (Director), Mike Oleon (Puppetry Director), Emily Breyer (Puppet and Scenic Designer), Jay Epps (Stage Manager), Corey Smith (Sound Designer), Cassandra Bierman (Lighting Designer), Warren Wernick (Scenic Engineer)

About Rough House:

Rough House Theater Company is committed to connecting individuals and communities through art that celebrates the weird things that make us unique, and the weirder things that bring us together.

Rough House creates theater that captures the heart through the eye. Rough House shows use puppetry, music, and human performance to tell stories that are intimate, strange, and sincere. The company aims to invigorate audiences and inspire fellow artists through work that is rigorous, adventurous, and jubilantly weird.

Through educational programming, cultivation of work by emerging and established artists, and broadly accessible performances, Rough House seeks to bring new life to puppet theater in Chicago, and to invigorate a spirit of cross-disciplinary artistic experimentation within an ever-growing, diverse community of artists.
