The Second City's She the People
Directed by Carly Heffernan
December 3, 2018 - January 6, 2019
An all-female, all-star team of The Second City’s most fearless, tuned-in sketch comics roasts the patriarchy and reclaims at least two hours of absolutely hilarious time. The producers of Black Side of the Moon and Nothing to Lose (But Our Chains) bring you a mimosa-and-madness-fueled foray into “having it all,” having each other’s backs, and having that sick feeling your government’s trying to turn back the clock to the Middle Ages. She the People… in order to perform a more perfect union!
Celebrating the tenth anniversary of The Second City’s first visit to Woolly!
By Aziza Barnes
Directed by Nataki Garrett
February 4 - March 3, 2019
After a bad health scare, Octavia decides to put off her troubles and blow off some serious steam with her friends June and Imani. Will one last epic night on the town—a true test of their friendship full of outrageous, absurd encounters—lead to epiphany or disaster?
BLKS is a “raw, blistering, hilarious, and engaging” (Chicago Sun-Times) new work that responds to a number of cultural icons, from Lena Dunham’s Girls to Seinfeld to August Wilson. Poet and playwright Aziza Barnes’ new play paints a miraculous portrait of a day in the life of three twentysomething black women wrestling with love, uncomfortable truths, and the anguish of adulting in New York City.

Describe the Night
By Rajiv Joseph
Directed by John Vreeke
May 27 - June 23, 2019
In 1920, Russian Jewish writer Isaac Babel starts a diary while wandering the countryside with the Red Cavalry. In 2010, after the crash of an aircraft carrying the Polish president, his diary is discovered among the wreckage. What did Babel write, and why does it matter so much to one ruthless KGB agent destined to become one of the most powerful figures in the world? Describe the Night uncovers the mystery by tracing the stories of seven lost souls connected across decades by history, fiction, lies, and blood.
Pulitzer Prize-finalist Rajiv Joseph returns to Woolly after hit productions of Guards at the Taj (2016) and Gruesome Playground Injuries (2010). Describe the Night is a “work of major ambition” (New York Times) that will feel both timeless and tuned in to the age of #FakeNews.
Directed by Woolly company member John Vreeke
Featuring Woolly company members Tim Getman and Kate Eastwood Norris

What the Constitution Means to Me
By Heidi Schreck
Directed by Oliver Butler
APRIL 1-APRIL 28, 2019
It’s 1989, and young Heidi is trying to earn enough money to go to college by entering speech competitions about the U.S. Constitution in American Legion halls all across the country. When she loses the first round to Becky Dobbins because her speech isn’t personal enough, she decides to go deep. Starting with her great-great-grandmother, a mail-order bride who died of “melancholia,” she pries into the effects of a single sentence of the Ninth Amendment on generations of American women and men. Before the night is over, she’s engaged in a fierce, impromptu debate with a local teen over the future of our inalienable rights.
Written by Obie Award-winning writer/performer Heidi Schreck (I Love Dick, Billions, Nurse Jackie), What the Constitution Means to Me is an exhilarating experience that “finds the political, and the powerful, in the personal.” (New York Magazine)
What the Constitution Means to Me originated with Clubbed Thumb in partnership with True Love Productions as part of Summerworks 2017. This play was commissioned by True Love Productions and developed in partnership with Clubbed Thumb.
