February 4-March 13, 2016
By Resident Playwright Scott Woldman
Directed by Rachel Edwards Harvith, Associate Artistic Director at Chicago Dramatists

It’s the early 90s in Chicago, and 24-year-old Jimmy has a terrible time making friends. Despite his good looks, casual banter in bars comes screeching to a halt when he begins to rattle off facts about nanotechnology or dark matter, topics about which he is deeply obsessed…due to his autism. Comedy ensues when Eric—a young man whose social graces are just as awkward—takes Jimmy on as his wingman and attempts to tutor him in the art of the pick-up, with dubious results.

Winner of the Edgerton Foundation New Play Award! As a recipient of this distinction, Woldman received support for the production. The Edgerton Foundation has supported over 250 world premiere productions across the United States, 15 of these have continued on to Broadway.

Previews: February 4-12
OPENING NIGHT: February 13
