graveyard shift On Stage Now At The Goodman Theatre

Rising stars playwright korde arrington tuttle and director Danya Taymor reunite for graveyard shift, following its appearance as a developmental production in the Goodman’s 2018 New Stages Festival.

Featuring an ensemble cast of five, graveyard shift is an unflinching but open-hearted look at how we navigate a world full of fear, loosely inspired by the legacy of Sandra Bland.

Casting note: Debo Balogun replaces previously announced actor Kyle Vincent Terry, who has left the production. Full casting is below. Graveyard shift appears through March 8 in the Goodman’s 350-seat Owen Theatre. Tickets ($10-45; subject to change) are on sale now at GoodmanTheatre.org/graveyardshift, by phone at 312.443.3800 or at the box office (170 North Dearborn).

When she receives the opportunity of a lifetime, Janelle relocates to Texas and moves in with her partner, Kane. Meanwhile, a small-town police officer’s life is thrown into flux when the coworker he’s romantically involved with decides to leave town. When their worlds collide, Janelle experiences firsthand how dangerous power can be.

The ensemble cast features Debo Balogun (Kane), Keith D. Gallagher (Brian), Rae Gray (Elise), Aneisa Hicks(Janelle) and Lia D. Mortensen (Trish). The creative team includes Kristen Robinson (Set Design), Montana Levi Blanco (Costume Design), Marcus Doshi (Lighting Design) and Richard Woodbury (Original Music and Sound Design). Rebekah Heusel is the Production Stage Manager.
