LASTmatch is proud and excited to present the world premier of "Feet of Clay," a new play by Stephen Louis Grush.
The Story of LASTmatch
IT ALL BEGAN ONE BLUSTERY FEBRUARY NIGHT...
Three women sat on the floor of a Chicago highrise apartment and gazed out into the glittering city lights. The enormous undertaking of actually starting a theatre company was secondary to the simple and irresistible declaration that the three of us would produce a play!
A NON-PROFIT IS BORN!
Mountains of legal documents later, LASTmatch Theatre Company incorporates April 8th, 2010.
SQUATTING AT THE HAROLD WASHINGTON LIBRARY
Combing through the stacks for existing plays that feature multiple strong roles for young women, and we're coming up surprisingly short. Our initial impulse of producing original works is becoming more and more appealing. And then...
A CHANCE ENCOUNTER WITH A FANTASTIC CHICAGO PLAYWRIGHT
In a cornered nook of an earthy Logan Square cafe, Stephen Louis Grush sat down to tea with the Ladies of LASTmatch. By the end of the afternoon we'd discussed life, death, karma, music, and were all excited to collaborate!
FEET OF CLAY GETS ITS LEGS!
With script in hand and pre-production already in full swing, we hire a director and set audition dates while simultaneously planning a November launch party for FEET OF CLAY. (You're invited!)
THIS IS WHERE YOU ENTER... STAGE RIGHT!
LASTmatch launches their project on Kickstarter.com to fund the remainder of production costs for the company's inaugural production: FEET OF CLAY. Help us keep this ball rolling by pledging your support today and sharing our little-project-that could with all your friends! Your Kickstarter donation will help us pay for performance space rental, cover our budget for wardrobe and props, and provide stipends for the director, set designer, crew and actors who will generously collaborate on this project.
MORE ABOUT FEET OF CLAY
Inspired by Chekhov’s classic Three Sisters, this present-day story is set near Fort Polk army base in Leesville, a rural town just outside New Orleans. The play explores the relationships of three adult siblings adapting to life without their parents, as well as the lasting effects of war on both the soldiers who fought and the loved ones to whom they return. It is a story of people who dream about escaping their present reality and creating a new and fulfilling life... if only they knew how.
