Under America

A World Premiere
by Jacob Juntunen
directed by Rachel Edwards Harvith

The world premiere of Under America was presented by Mortar Theatre Company at the Athenaeum Theatre in Chicago, IL, in September 2010.

Her job threatened, a reporter from Chicago’s Gold Coast must write a series on public housing, gentrification, and the prison industry. But when she moves into the infamous Cabrini Green projects, she tries to help with the legal problems of a young man willing to get out by any means necessary. In the end, they both find themselves lost in the tunnels that seem to connect everything Under America.

“As long as Mortar Theatre continues to put out
a high level of execution, this could be a group
to watch for years to come.”
-Paul Cosca, SteadStyleChicago.com
