Caroline, Or Change

Saturday, December 9, 2017 at 2:00pm

Theatre Center, Studio 404 72 E. 11th Street, Chicago, IL, 60605

In the sweltering heat of Lake Charles, Louisiana (1963), Caroline Thibodeaux works as a maid for the Gellman family. After the announcement of President Kennedy’s assassination, Caroline’s family and the Gellmans are pressured to contemplate their social statuses as black and Jewish Americans, respectively. Set to a musical collage that ranges from Motown to klezmer, Caroline, or Change peels back the breastbones of each character to reveal an ensemble of hearts that are eager to change the world, “come fast or come slow.”
