“Enchanted and enchanting… a wholly wonderful show that is profound, yet at the very same time whimsical beyond all imagining” – Chicago Sun-Times

With the very opening lines, we learn the basic plot of this anything-but-predictable new play set in 1920s Chicago: the three Fail sisters – Nelly, Jenny June and Gerty – have very little time left. But before it’s curtains for each young woman, she finds love and happiness in this quirky, macabre fantasia that examines the truism: “’Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.”

Set to live music, this production will feature five actors performing guitar, piano, stand-up bass, violin, mandolin, flute and more.
