Before Tom Arvetis set out to write Spark, he hosted a series of storytelling workshops at Hispanic middle schools in Chicago, instructing students to invent a hero with the power to rectify a painful situation in their lives. Although Arvetis weaves elements from Greek myths into the resulting play, intended for kids nine and older, there's no obscuring the students' plight. A curious teen named Pandora has been separated from her mother by a totalitarian ruler so obsessed with border control that he indoctrinates the younger generation into believing anyone who attempts to gain unauthorized access is a terrorist and a monster. The implication is shattering, but under the direction of Rives Collins, the talented, enthusiastic cast at Adventure Stage Chicago convey hope and perseverance. —Jena Cutie
