Immersive theater productions that place viewers in the same space as the actors are very difficult to pull off, but Windy City Playhouse’s Southern Gothic has the right blend of skill and ambition to create a memorable and unique theater experience. Leslie Liautaud’s script is a familiar drama about a group of coupled friends getting drunk and unloading their secrets on each other, but David H. Bell’s graceful, intricate direction and the rich performances draw the audience deep into this world. Snacks and cocktails appropriate to the 1961 Georgia setting are served, reinforcing the party atmosphere. It’s impossible to witness everything once the action spreads throughout the entire home, but a major part of the fun is piecing together bits of information gathered by being a fly on the wall. —Oliver Sava
