The Theatre School at DePaul University presents Growing Up Blue by Chloë Orlando and directed by Shade Murray:
On the verge of Blue’s 14th birthday, everyone in their small town finds out Blue may be transgender. Blue is confronted with violence, new restrictions on bathroom use, and an offer to star in a new reality television show. In this new play by Chloë Orlando, Blue struggles to grow up and escape a life in hiding to discover the beauty in difference.
And the core question: What does it mean to hide who you are in order to survive?
See Growing Up Blue from May 18 to May 26 on the Fullerton Stage. Tickets are $15.

Tickets are now available for Satyagraha: Gandhi / King, an original theatrical documentary conceived and directed by Dexter Bullard; researched, written, and performed by the Class of 2018 Graduate Actors and the Dramaturgy Team; and researched, imagined, and designed by the Production Team.
This ensemble-driven devised piece featuring the graduating MFA in Acting candidates explores “satyagraha” or non-violent resistance and the violent reactions that meet it. Crisscrossing space and time from Mahatma Gandhi in South Africa and India to Martin Luther King in the American South, this physically-charged, multi-disciplinary work features the stories of two powerful women: Kasturba Gandhi and Coretta Scott.
Satyagraha: Gandhi / King runs from May 4 to 6 at the Healy Theater (2350 N Racine Ave, 4th Floor). Tickets are $10.
