    Margaret Atwood’s

    Good Bones & Simple Murders

    In a new stage adaptation by Eileen Glenn

    Be the first to see this evening of sometimes whimsical, occasionally frightening, and always perceptive observations on life from a woman’s point of view.  Atwood’s sly eye and caustic wit make her work a natural for performance and Eileen Glenn’s singular mix of southern wryness and cosmopolitan smarts make her a natural Atwood interpreter.  Adapted by Eileen Glenn and directed by Karen Case Cook.

    “Glenn becomes a stunning theatrical representation of Atwood’s voice….. a soul satisfying literary feast!”   –Chicago Tribune

    “An enticing portrait… On top of every mood and moment, Glenn makes Atwood’s many voices matter.”  -Chicago Sun Times
