Death & Pretzels is proud to present the Chicago premiere of local playwright, Will Coleman's Helvetica, a play about storytelling and storytellers.
Helvetica Burke was one of the most famous and respected childrens authors in the world. Her books had captivated millions, but the life she led wasnt quite a storybook affair. Through the eyes of her beloved stuffed bear, Myron, we see the three women she was - the past, present, and future of the person no one knew.
Myron: Mac Westcott
Past Helvetica: Brianna Joy Ford
Present Helvetica: Rae Hamilton-Vargo
Future Helvetica: Lily Sauvage
Mother and Others: Emma Palizza
Father and Others: Nick Strauss
Husband and Others: Adam Mengesha
