Here’s what some have said about ANNA, IN THE DARKNESS:

“In Megan Merrill’s flawless performance, Anna’s shifts between sympathetic vulnerability and deep-seeded rage throw both her innocence and her sanity into question … the play inflicts a devilish torture on the imagination.”
– Marissa Oberlander, Chicago Reader

“Megan Merrill gives a quietly powerful tour de force … Anna is also immersed in psychological darkness, and this is the darkness that haunts long after you’ve left the theater.” – Zach Freeman, New City

“A chilling experience … you feel like you’re stuck in that dang living room with her, exposed and susceptible to the lurking danger outside.” – Nina Metz, Chicago Tribune

SQUARE ROOTS FESTIVAL: Anna W Menekseoglu teaches the workshop Zombie Movement: Reanimating Your Stage Presence. Saturday July 12 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. at the Old Town School of Folk Music, 4544 N. Lincoln Ave. Look for DTC company members mingling all weekend in costume!

Soon the amazing folks at the Chicago Fringe Festival will be giving us our dates for our 5 performances of THE MECHANICAL MAN, an all-girl silent steampunk play told in German Expressionist film style, but with DTC's signature raw, unflinching form of art. Look for us at Fringe between Aug. 28 and Sept. 7
And finally: 

Our first mainstage show will be Artistic Director Jeremy Menekseoglu's reimagining of MEDEA. With the "unstoppable" Rachel Martindale in the title role, the show will also feature company members Anna W Menekseoglu, Amanda Lynn Meyer, Madelaine Schmitt, Megan Merrill and Jeremy Menekseoglu. 

We can't wait to share all this new work with you!
