WORLD PREMIERE

For the Loyal

by Lee Blessing
Directed by Michael Robins

Toby and Mia are graduate students with a baby on the way. Toby, an assistant coach in a famous collegiate sports program, stumbles upon a secret that threatens to throw their entire future into jeopardy. As the couple is caught between honesty and loyalty, Mia embarks on a journey to discover who she really is and—given the world she's in—whether doing wrong is the only way left to do right.

"What makes the show most compelling is Mia, as a mixture of guilt, horror, and rage plays across her character. Anna Sundberg combines all of those with a bedrock of strength that provides a much-needed center to the constantly shifting time frames and locations of the play "

Support Our 40th Anniversary Season

Thurgood is a powerful example of what Illusion Theater does best. We believe that theater can educate us about our shared history and in doing so spark deep understanding and rich dialogue that inspires meaningful action. We are pleased to report that during a run of packed houses, over 500 high school students saw Thurgood. Sixteen community leaders joined us for robust and thought provoking post-play discussions after every show.

We invite you to join our efforts today with a gift to our 40th Anniversary Campaign in the amount of $100 or $250 or with an amount that is meaningful to you. Your support will help to ensure that we mark this milestone with strength and ensure a strong future so we can continue to carry out our mission of presenting and creating bold, visionary and thought-provoking new work as you saw in Thurgood.
