Premiere Series
November 8-25

World premiere of a New Play by Steve Emily

November 8 – 25

 “The Tap” captures the world of four regulars at a run-down, north-side Chicago bar as they stave off the cold, the loneliness and the threat of encroaching change coming to the neighborhood.   They form a kind of family that has grown together within the walls of their beloved tavern and we the audience root for all of them to survive. Endearing characters, strong dialogue and real heart make this new play a very strong addition to the Millibo season.

Rated R –  This drama occasionally contains strong language.  

Written by Steve Emily

Directed by Jim Jackson

Performed by

Steve Emily, Lynn Jacobs, Michael Miller and Lisbeth Splawn
