Tangled Member Picks The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through May 20 2012

"Hell yeah I'm mad at colored folks," says Clo, the protagonist of Nicole Anderson-Cobb's new play about three women running a south-side funeral home. "Colored folk don't give a damn. They're letting their kids die." Set in 2010, when at least 52 Chicagoans were shot and eight killed in gang violence during a single weekend, Tangled poses questions Chicagoans must still grapple with: Why stay in neighborhoods where children are targets? What makes black-on-black crime so pervasive? How do we untangle ourselves from the cycle of murder? As Clo, the dynamic and wickedly funny Cynthia Faye Carter creates the most poignant moments through humor. Carter is the heart and soul of this work about navigating life in the midst of death. —Elly Fishman
