Chicago Dramatists, the venerable, 33-year-old Chicago institution known for its support of new plays, has announced its 2012-13 season of three world premieres.
In the fall, Meghan Beals McCarthy will direct "Freshly Fallen Snow" by M.E. Lewis, a piece exploring the role of medical treatments designed to help people recover from traumatic memories.
In January, artistic director Russ Tutterow directs "Southbridge" by Reginald Edmund, a play about racially charged violence in Athens, Ohio, in 1881.
The season concludes in May 2013 with "Homecoming 1972" by Robert Koon. Directed by Kimberly Senior, this is a story of a Vietnam vet trying to readjust to small-town Midwestern life.
