What’s Coming up

Our next Friday Staged Reading

Friday, December 4, 8 pm

The Eumenides, by Aeschylus

directed by Cameron Peltz
Orestes’s mother killed his father, and, with his sister Electra and the god Apollo urging him on, he has avenged his father by killing his mother.  But matricide is also a heinous crime, and now, the Erinyes, or Furies, are driving him mad with their vengeful hounding.  What’s a boy to do?  When the ancient Athenians told the story of how trial-by jury was established, this is the story they told.  At Augustana Lutheran Church, 5500 S. Woodlawn Ave. Admission: $5 at the door.

Who are we?

We are a not-for-profit, all-volunteer group dedicated to creating and nurturing vital community theater in the greater Hyde Park, Chicago neighborhood.  We are always happy to welcome new people who would like to join us in our planning, our activities, and our productions. We emphasize genuine engagement in the project of creating both community and theater.  Active members commit to working on the implementation and the promotion of each HPCP production. (And, by the way, this is a growing website.  We hope it has what you needed today; we look to be able to offer much, much more in the future.  Thanks for visiting.)
