Mrs. Coney returns to Oak Park. Belinda Bremner’s tale of kindness and transformation is December’s Play and a Pint selection.

Artistic Associates Barbara Zamora and Aaron Christiansen will be joined by young Morgan Fox in this story for all ages  set in a hard scrabble Depression era Appalachian December. As a special holiday treat, Skyler Schrempp and Jared Sheldon will provide accompaniment on fiddle and guitar.
This is a memory play, narrated by James, the grown up version of Jamie, the young boy who, with his parents has lost their Oklahoma home to the Dust Bowl migrate east to live on the charity of older, childless relatives in a Kentucky holler. All discover redemption through simple acts of kindness in the face of bitterness and fear. Humor and humanity are the gifts of the season.
“Mrs. Coney” won the Kennedy Center prize for Best New Short Play, and has enjoyed critically acclaimed productions across America. Local reviews include Hedy Weiss of the Chicago Sun- Times: “A lovely little piece of storytelling that appeals to the heart and spirit rather than the wallet…better than any Christmas carols.” Richard Christiansen, Chicago Tribune, had reported “It’s a darling show, artful and heartwarming in the telling.” The play, described as “a small theatrical miracle wherein magic, folklore and the spirit of Christmas combine to weave a powerful spell” will be directed by the playwright.
