“Page-turning storytelling!” The New York Times “A sci-fi story, owing formative debts to the likes of CARRIE, MEAN GIRLS, and WICKED” Chicago Tribune
Created by the award-winning team at The House Theatre of Chicago, The Sparrow is one of the most original and acclaimed new works to emerge from the Chicago theater scene in decades. The play, intertwined with music and dance, tells the story of Emily Book, a small-town girl returning home 10 years after a tragic accident that claimed the lives of her entire class. As the town struggles to accept the strange girl who reminds them of their loss, Emily attempts to hide the special powers that make her different.
