Spring drama: Failure: A Love Story and Drama IV Showcase

This spring, members of the community can see the talents of Lakeside drama students in two productions. All performances are free and open to the public.

Thursday, May 17 – Saturday, May 19, 7 p.m.
Failure: A Love Story
St. Nicholas Hall, Upper School campus
The Upper School drama program presents " Failure: A Love Story” by Philip Dawkins. A whimsical chorus follows the story of three sisters, Nelly, Jenny June, and Gerty, as they live out their lives above the family clock repair shop near the Chicago River, before their time unexpectedly runs out. The tension between chance and choice resonates from the wild and unpredictable fate of these women as they embark boldly in the direction of their passions. It’s a magical fable where, in the end, the power of love is far greater than any individual's successes or failures.
