Written with a wicked wit and a keen sense of compassion, Mud Blue Sky follows a late-night conversation between three middle-aged flight attendants and a teenaged pot dealer in a nondescript hotel room near O’Hare Airport. Marisa Wegrzyn has enjoyed significant success as a playwright and as a writer for CBS’s The Mentalist. In 2006, Chicago’s prestigious Steppenwolf Theatre Company premiered her play The Butcher of Baraboo to widespread acclaim. Then in 2009, Hickorydickory won Wegrzyn the Wasserstein Prize, an accolade that celebrates bold female voices in the American theater. Now her latest comes to the Aurora Theatre Company. Work, motherhood, prom night and the persistent power of kindness are all illuminated in this brilliant play from a remarkable talent.
