Trek with your fellow theatre and arts fans to the UIC Mainstage Theatre for the third production of the 2019/20 season; Barbecue, written by Robert O'Hara and directed by UIC's very own Jeff Award-winning faculty member & Honors College Fellow Derrick Sanders.

The O’Mallerys have gathered in their local park to share some barbecue and straight talk with their sister Barbara, whose spiral of drugs and recklessness has forced her siblings to stage an open-air intervention. But the event becomes raucous and unpredictable as familial stereotypes collide with hard realities, and racial politics slam up against the stories we tell—and maybe even believe—about who we were and who we've become.

Following the show, we will stay after for a brief post-show discussion with some of the artists and UIC production team.

Grab an Honors College friend and come together to witness and appreciate the work of our friends in the theatre department!
