About This Show

When words become weapons, a different kind of war begins. Atlas waits for news of her brother, Tithon, who is fighting outside. But when a friend and fellow soldier, Chiron, appears instead, Atlas must decide what is more important: the safety Chiron provides, or the hope of Tithon’s return.

The Chicago Iowa Theatre Collective is a group of alumni from the University of Iowa set on developing new work, bringing together the most motivated and exciting collaborators from around the Midwest.
