Painting Molly
Found Objects Theatre Group presents Painting Molly: Two One-Act Plays:

The Art of Painting
Written and performed by Mark Chrisler, directed by Tim Racine.
Found Objects Theatre Group's Chicago premiere of their acclaimed 2012 New York International Fringe Festival show. Written and performed by The Chicago Reader's "Best Emerging Playwright of 2009" Mark Chrisler, and directed by Teenager of The Year's Tim Racine, The Art of Painting is the sort-of-true story of one of history's greatest painters, Vermeer, and one of history's greatest forgers, Hans Von Meegren, told through a mysterious and malcontented instructor in the strangest art history lecture ever recorded. The Art of Painting is a centuries-spanning journey of sex and impotence, violence and murder, Nazis and cheats, patricide and rue, authenticity and falsehood, that Backstage Magazine calls "a masterful piece of heady writing," and The New York Times calls "a sophomore's dream." Now, for the first time, Chicago gets a chance at the very production which NYTheatre says "demonstrates a startling eloquence and intellectual depth, neatly packed into fifty minutes."

Notes to Molly
Written by Chris Bower, directed by Kevlyn Hayes.
An all new staging of Chris Bower's one-act play about a couple that has one bed, one bed that both never use at the same time. Notes to Molly is a play about failure, searching for things in the dark, and fish which Chicago Theater Beat describes as "an indelible portrait of a dead-end alcoholic couple and the psychological forces that barely keep them hanging on, to themselves and to life... an intensely realized work." The 2010 Prop Thtr production received both Critic's Choice and Reader Recommends citations from The Chicago Reader, who said Notes to Molly "suggests what The Sun Also Rises might've been like if Hemingway had never left Oak Park."
