Parishioner Scottie Caldwell is acting in Cor Theatre's production of "A Map of Virtue" by Erin Courtney.
A Map of Virtue is "A hauntingly romantic play with a mystery at its center...[it] was hailed "one of the most terrifying plays of the past decade" by the New York Times. It premiered at New York's 13P in 2012, won an Obie Award and was named a New York Times Critic's Pick."
It's an incredible little mystery of a play with a very dark center, and a tremendous cast: Will Von Vogt, Mallory Nees, Nick Mikula, Ruben David Adorno, Eleni Pappageorge, and Adam Benjamin, and our own Scottie Caldwell, all under the incredible direction of Tosha Fowler. Come see this one!
The play is at Rivendell Theatre in Edgewater (5779 N Ridge). Performances are Thursday-Saturday at 7:30pm and Sunday at 5:00pm, through February 14th. More info at: http://cortheatre.org

KEYS OF THE KINGDOM

As assistant to the celebrity pastor of an evangelical mega church, Arthur obeys orders, attacks paperwork, and guards against sin. So Arthur is surprised when the church pastor commissions a mural from Irene Hoff, an atheist New York artist married to another woman. Arthur is even more surprised when the pastor explains that he believes Irene has been chosen by God. But the biggest surprise of all is what happens when Irene shows up and starts to paint.
