Where's Tricky by Michael Sokoloff
Resident Playwright Michael Sokoloff returns with more original work for NPT to kick the shit out of poker night. Laurence Bryan directs the staged reading of Where's Tricky. Where's Tricky is a supreme aggression toward the real “bad guys”. “When you summon the trickster who comes?” Like nothing you've ever seen.

IBO co-founder, Kristin Reeves is in town so NPT is helping us throw a party !

This performance marks Bennett’s first return to NPT’s stage in 12 years! He started his chicago career at NPT, where he was once a company member and MiLkBabY scored shows such as Yuba City and The Possessed. NPT was a great influence on him and he is looking forward to this return…
