Directed by Joanie Schultz, Bruise Easy is ATC's second collaboration with Dan LeFranc, a writer on Showtime's 2015 Golden Globe-winning drama The Affair and playwright of ATC's blockbuster world premiere The Big Meal-which went on to an extended off-Broadway run at Playwrights Horizons.
Single tickets for Bruise Easy range from $38-$48 and are available by calling the ATC box office at 773-409-4125, or visiting www.atcweb.org. Subscription packages are also available starting at $105.
"In Bruise Easy, ATC realizes a longtime dream with Ensemble Member Kelly O'Sullivan and Youth Ensemble Members Matt Gomez-Hidaka, Jenna Makkaway, Michael Sandoval and Leah Schiffman appearing together on the mainstage in our Legacy Season," says ATC Interim Artistic Director Bonnie Metzgar.
Last summer, as part of her Princess Grace Foundation Award Theater Fellowship, O'Sullivan directed the ATC Youth Ensemble production of Greensboro: A Requiem by Emily Mann. The production process included traveling with the students to Greensboro, North Carolina, to conduct research and first-person interviews related to the deadly 1979 attack by the KKK and American Nazi Party on a peaceful protest by union organizers.
