About this project

After a successful Midwest Premiere in 2011 of Beauty of the Fatherby Pulitzer Winner Nilo Cruz, UrbanTheater Company (UTC) continues SEASON SIX with the highly anticipated production of Fucking A by Pulitzer Prize (Topdog/Underdogand MacArthur Genius Award recipient, Suzan-Lori Parks. Fucking A will be performed in association with Pegasus Players’ new home at 4520 N. Beacon Street (formerly the historic Hull House).

Fucking A is set in a post apocalyptic world, Hester, an Abortionist, must take life in order to save the life of her imprisoned son. Inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne’s, The Scarlet LetterFucking A explores societal corruption, sexual politics and the enduring love of one mother for her child. Provocative and redemptive, this is a theatrical event not to be missed

UrbanTheater Company has assembled a top-notch cast and production team, but we need your HELP to get us through the beginning stages of this production. Every penny you donate will go directly to the costs necessary to making our production a success. Unfortunately, if our goal isn't met before targeted deadline, we don't get a penny. You can donate as little as $1 to as much as you are capable of. Every little bit counts, and we would love your help in making this amazing production come to life. 

From its inception, UrbanTheater Company has produced, promoted and performed plays of under-represented playwrights of color, allowing theatre to thrive in communities appreciative of cultural inclusion and accessibility. Celebrating it’s 6th Season and tenth production, the Joseph Jefferson recommended and award winning company has featured a myriad of critically acclaimed Chicago directors including Ron OJ Parson, Cecilie Keenan, Joel Moorman, Marti Lyons and Richard Perez. With eight Midwest Premieres and one World Premiere, UTC has provided tremendous opportunities for actors of color to perform in professional productions. 

Fucking A will be performed at Pegasus Players/Beacon Street Hull House located in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood, from March 22nd - April 15th, 2012; preview performances from March 20th – March 21st.

Thank you for your support and for being a vital part of fulfilling our mission to bring compelling stories,From the Streets to the Stage!
