City Lit, the long-standing company that specializies in literary adaptations, has announced its 2012-13 season.
The company's 33rd season consists of “Frankenstein” by Bo List, adapted from the novel by Mary Shelley (opening in October); “The Cricket on the Hearth,” adapted from the Charles Dickens story by Edward Kuffert (for the holidays); “Peyton Place” by Grace Metalious, adapted and directed by Paul Edwards; and an original piece entitled “Comrades Mine: Emma Edmonds of the Union Army,” penned by Maureen Gallagher. Part of City Lit's Sesquicentennial Civil War Series, “Comrades Mine” opens in April.
Currently based on Bryn Mawr Avenue, City Lit has announced plans to move to Howard Street in Evanston, but no timetable is clear.
