REVIEWS ARE IN!
Be amazed and delighted thru April 4th at the Chopin theatre, dear readers. The times they are tough like a bit of ill cut and badly charred roast beef yet we forge bravely ahead! Edwardian boots on feet, Striped stocking pulled up to the knee, empty bird cages and antique settees in place and ready to entertain you.
Now is the time when your support for things like magical realism matters most. The large mechanical elephants and evil potted plants of the world will be the better for it.
The Dastardly Ficus is delightful!

Why just look at what these kindly folks are saying:
“This play already has a cult following—see it and you’ll understand why.”
“…Walk out of the theater feeling you’ve seen something completely, delightfully original.”
“An artfully constructed gem.”
“Schwartz is a master storyteller.”
“The Dastardly Ficus offers a deadly good time!”
“Friedrich Doesn’t have a current theatrical peer.”
“Enoch can stare daggers through a coffee table.”
“Everything I love about Edward Gorey, Roald Dahl, and any fairy tales with wicked stepsisters or spinster aunts is currently living warmly in the basement of the Chopin Theater.”
“Head-turning comic technique.”
“Disturbing and overwhelmingly endearing.”
“A most delightful bit of offbeat whimsy.”
“What makes “The Dastardly Ficus” so fun is the talent of these two women.”
“Carol Enoch and Nancy Freidrich make for a surprisingly affecting if outrageous pair.” -SteadStyleChicago.com
