Watch the Today We Escape trailer!
Escape the cold. Escape the mundane.
Check out the trailer for Today We Escape: Plays Inspired by OK COMPUTER opening at The Den Theatre!
A companion piece to Tympanic’s critically-acclaimed 2012 play festival, Deliver Us From Nowhere — itself drawn from Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska — Today We Escape pairs twelve Chicago playwrights with thirteen directors to create an evening of theatre inspired by Radiohead’s experimental album, OK Computer. Each writer used a song on the record as the springboard for a short play before an ensemble of musicians composes original music based on the plays themselves. Like Deliver Us….Today We Escape is a meditation on how art reflects art; a live album in the most unique sense of the word, and a celebration of music that is at times detached, yet strangely comforting.
The escape begings March 13th!
Today We Escape: Twelve Plays Inspired by Radiohead's OK Computer! Fri – Sat, 7:30pm, Sun, 3pm at The Den Theatre 1333 N. Milwaukee Ave.
