Vs | Drinking & Writing Theater @ Haymarket Pub & Brewery | Theater & Performance | Chicago Reader
This is a past event.
When: Saturdays. Continues through May 2 2015
Price: $15
The cast of this Drinking & Writing production splits into two teams of three for this "debate" on topics that change monthly—beer versus wine is first, and future contests promise to be equally intractable. But rather than exchange arguments, the two sides defend their preferred beverage by swapping pint-size plays (and sketches, monologues, songs, or videos), many based on curiously bleak tales of boozing. You know those people who take their own arbitrary or insignificant preferences far too seriously? Vs is a winning exercise in humorously unsettling them, and though a few scenes could use a couple more passes through the wine press, most benefit from the lunatic single-mindedness these guys bring to any fanciful, fluttering premise (a corner beer shop that doesn't sell any beer, for instance). —Jena Cutie
