Sometimes grief strikes so deep there is no earthly cure, but a brush with the divine can change everything. Eclipse Theatre Company’s 2015 McNally season continues with his Pulitzer nominated play, A Perfect Ganesh, which follows two middle-aged women to India on a journey for inner peace. Personal tragedies have pushed them from their normal Caribbean vacations onto a new path, driven by a despair so profound that only the golden elephant god, Ganesha, can help them. Fluid in his power to assume any disguise, at peace with all things, Ganesha is the spiritual center of the play, leading the women on an intoxicating journey to explore their secret dreams and tragic pasts. Ensemble member Steven Fedoruk directs this powerfully life-affirming comic drama at Chicago’s Athenaeum Theatre.
