Melancholy Play
A Chamber Musical
by Sarah Ruhl

November 30 – December 22, 2019

“A case for melancholy as an authentic and worthy state of being […] maybe even a state to be cherished.” – Chicago Tribune

Tilly is consumed by a melancholy so exquisite that no one can resist her. Her tailor, her hairdresser, and even her therapist succumb to the allure of her perpetual sadness. But when Tilly inexplicably discovers happiness, her joy wreaks havoc on the lives of her paramours. Contrary to its title, this whimsical comedy by award-winning playwright Sarah Ruhl will make you fall in love with love.
