"Jade Heart" at Chicago Dramatists.
This theater has existed in Chicago for over 30 years now and very recently received acclaim when an original play from its stage opened on Broadway in NYC; "A Steady Rain". Chicago Dramatists is a charming theater. It's a smaller venue with less than 100 seats, but I loved the atmosphere. In celebration of Chicago Dramatist's 31st season a campaign has been launched to raise funding from those who are willing to donate just $31 each. This is a great way to support the Arts!
"Jade Heart" is a new production from Playwright Will Cooper and is the story of a girl who questions who she truly is. Jade was born in China, but adopted into an American family. It depicts the struggles between a single mother, her (at times) challenging daughter, and a life seemingly placed in the middle of two worlds. I think that it's the perfect time of the year for this new play to debut, because it shows the relationship between a mother and child...where the mother states that "A family isn't who births you." Through "Jade Heart" one can be reminded that regardless of cultural differences, a love between a woman and her adoptive child can grow strong. I was particularly impressed by the feeling and emotion that the actors displayed. They truly care about what they are bringing across to the audience. "Jade Heart" is running at Chicago Dramatists now through May 30th.
