The latest work from Cry Havoc Theater Company opened on January 11. Since 2014, the youth theater company has created work around themes of social justice. Last year, they received the National Community Impact Award from Theatre for Young Audiences/USA.
For their latest production, From the Table: A Celebration of Food, Kelsey Leigh Ervi, Associate Artistic Eirector of WaterTower Theater in Addison has guest directed a play in which 11 teenage actors tackle the pivotal role that food plays in family and community and the complex ways life, love, and loss are communicated and held through ritual. A partnership with Café Momentum, the non-profit for at-risk youth, makes each performance a shared food experience as well.
