Please join alums, parents and friends for a wonderful night out at the Greenhouse Theater in Lincoln Park. From Off-Broadway comes this astonishing charmer of a play, based upon the semi-autobiographical final work of three-time Pulitzer Prize–winning icon of American letters, Thornton Wilder. Theophilus North is set in the tiny resort town of Newport, Rhode Island, during the height of the Jazz Age in summer, 1926, Theophilus North follows the exploits of the title character as he searches for adventure and his place in the world. Quitting his teaching position in New Jersey, and stranded in Newport after his jalopy breaks down, thirty-year-old Theophilus takes odd jobs (tennis instructor, French tutor, private reader. . . ) in the houses of the wealthy. Soon, he finds himself entangled in the lives and troubles of Newport's residents, but the greatest adventure in store is not at all what he imagined . . .

After the play, please join us in the lobby for a meet-and-talk with the director, cast, and our very own Professor Kent Gallagher '57.  Professor Gallagher is the president of the Board of Trustees of the Organic Theater Company and has directed more than 50 plays.

Tickets:  $20.  Tickets may be purchased at the Greenhouse Theater.  Tell them you are part of the “Carleton group” to get this discount price, which includes the play, service fees, and the private post-play reception.

Greenhouse Theater is accessible by the CTA redline (Fullerton). Metered parking is available and there is parking at the Children's Memorial Hospital for $5 with validation.
