On a dusty road between Backwards and Conspiratorial, lies a town called Progress, where Ida, the mayor, dreams of creating a utopia. Her first citizens, Slim, Weed and Vivian, have contrary ideas about what that means in this new comedy about who’s on top. Chicago playwright Trina Kakacek explores the economics of gender and the myth of having it all. PTE ensemble member Anna C. Bahow will direct. Performances of A Town Called Progress will take place at The Den Theatre, 1331 N. Milwaukee Ave.
