CHI (P) - SIG Theater Group "The ripple, the wave that carried me home." January 29

Come join other TTN theater lovers for a live theater outing! This month the play is presented by the Goodman Theater, "a ripple, a wave that carried me home" by poet and playwright Christina Anderson.

The theater describes the show this way

A family responds to injustice and a daughter reckons with her political inheritance in this new play by “a poet, a playwright to pay attention to” (Variety).

Janice’s parents are prominent activists fighting for the integration of public swimming pools in 1960s Kansas. As injustice penetrates the warm bubble of her childhood, Janice grows apart from her family and starts a new life far away. When she receives a call asking her to speak at a ceremony honoring her father, she must decide whether she’s ready to reckon with her political inheritance—and a past she has tried to forget.

Mary has purchased a block of tickets for this show and, once that is exhausted, we will continue to get the $15 group rate so long as the theatre has seats available.  Accordingly:  

If you want a ticket, please email me at

Note that these are balcony tickets and require patrons to climb some stairs. If that will be an issue, let Mary know so we can explore other options for you.

The theater reserves the right to require audience members to wear a mask at all times.


 Cost: $15 Contact Mary for a ticket
 Plans for pre-show dinner will be sent later.
