“N” World Premiered at Chicago’s Greenhouse Theater.
“A provocative world premiere by Chicago writer David Alex at the Greenhouse Theater Center, this 100-minute character piece stirs up the sometimes static tale of an evolving relationship between proverbial and political opposites. As they learn from each other, the audience gets the best of both worlds. . . Can a trigger word for hate ever be spoken on stage, especially by a white actor? Does tame talk ever touch the truth? These are questions around which Alex constructs a solid story. . .Director TaRon Patton keeps it real, with help from three actors who prove very present and accounted for.” Stage and Screen -Larry Bommer
“One of the underlying themes of my work is to examine the conflict between man’s desire to remain an individual–true to himself– with the needs of society that demand a level of conformity to ensure its survival. My writing often portrays humanity’s struggle to balance these conflicting forces and the tragedies of those who cannot.”
David Alex has received three Awards from the Illinois Arts Council in Recognition in Playwriting, a Grant from the Pilgrim Foundation and has served as the Secretary of the Chicago Alliance for Playwrights and the Illinois Theatre Association.
He is a proud member of the Joseph Jefferson Committee that recognizes excellence in Chicago theatre and the Dramatists Guild.
David Alex lives in Chicago.
