A scream in the dark: two Chicago cops are torturing a suspect on the North Side. It's midnight on December 31st, 1959, and a beautiful woman with bloodshot eyes stands at a microphone reciting a Love Song for a new age: her name is Eve Slaughter, and before she's through the Sixties will be born in baptismal blood, a tide washing over the sinners who begat the biggest scandal in Chicago police history.
Almost six years in the making, BLACK ICE COFFINS is a play written by Mark Mason and Kay Kron, presented in a staged reading by Katy Nielsen's Outlaw Production Collective. This nightmarish noir based on a true story is narrated by Mary Jo Bolduc and stars Robbie Bersano, Chris Brown, Joe McCauley, Jennifer Melyndon, Nathan Randall Miller, Katy Nielsen, and Kein P. Onickel, and we would like to welcome you to this beat-inspired cocktail party/poetry reading in the awesome Mars Gallery, 1139 W. Fulton Market in Chicago, this upcoming Monday, March 2nd. Cocktails start at 7:00pm, the show starts at 7:30...we'll see you there for an exciting evening guaranteed to heat up a brutal winter.
