RED ORCHID: Pinter’s HOTHOUSE now playing

 


featuring ensemble member Jennifer Engstrom
with Peter DeFaria, Brian R. Dongarra, Gregory Hardigan, Daniel Rivkin, Steve Walker and Troy West
Christmas Eve is hectic enough in the company of loved ones.  But when you’re the warden of a government institution, the holiday promises to anything but a silent night.  A riotous blend of farce and terror, The Hothouse is considered to be Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter’s most comic play.

 

 

 

“A Red Orchid Theatre’s production of THE HOTHOUSE is so good – with an ensemble at once razor sharp, blisteringly funny, horrifying, desperate, outrageous and perhaps just one step shy of totally insane – you wish Pinter were in good enough shape to come see it.”  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
— Hedy Weiss, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

“… a smart-eyed, droll and menacing little show typified by an endlessly witty set from Grant Sabin, and numerous deliciously complex performances from the likes of Troy West (who is a hoot) and the knockout Steve Walker, who’ll remind you of Russell Crowe doing Beckett, if you can get your head around that juxtaposition.”

— Chris Jones, CHICAGO TRIBUNE
“Dado and her outstanding ensemble leave you laughing – nervously.”  CRITIC’S CHOICE!
— Kerry Reid, CHICAGO READER
