Adventure Stage Chicago is proud to announce the world premiere of Worthy. In a society where technology and media tell youth who they must be, Worthy whisks four young heroes on an adventurous quest, fighting dragons, breaking curses and choosing for themselves which paths to follow. Balancing of-the-moment references and resonant, recognizable themes found in classic fairy tale literature, Worthy challenges these four young people to reclaim their identities against tremendous odds. With a punk-rock-infused soundtrack, a deconstructed design aesthetic, and an emphasis on the technology that tweens have adopted as second nature, Worthy packs a visual and emotional punch. Tickets may be purchased at adventurestage.org or by calling (773) 342-4141.
