Chicago's Rivendell Theatre is proud to present a world premiere adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s acclaimed novel, Alias Grace. Alias Grace takes a look at one of Canada’s most notorious murderers. In 1843, 16-year-old Grace Marks was accused of brutally murdering her employer and his housekeeper. Imprisoned for years, Grace still swears she has no memory of the killings. A doctor in the emerging field of mental health arrives to try to find out the truth of the matter. Alias Grace is a fascinating study of memory, culpability, and the shadowy spaces within the human mind.
For this event, members of Rivendell's artistic team will join Women & Children First on Tuesday, September 12th at 7pm to share a scene from their upcoming production. This will be followed by an in-store discussion of both the book as well as Rivendell's process of bringing the novel to the stage.
