The Guild Literary Complex is pleased to announce the 2013 remount of “Tour Guides”. Produced in 2010 as part of the Poetry Performance Incubator, “Tour Guides”, gives audiences a lyrical tour of the Chicago tourists never see. Originally written by a team of six, “Tour Guides” has had twelve distinct voices take part in its development since 2010. Restaged at the Beverly Arts Center by noted director Coya Paz (Teatro Luna, Proyecto Latina, The Americans), “Tour Guides” is an insider’s peek at life in Chicago. From a haunting tour of the city’s “ghost bikes” to a hilarious look at the way neighborhood cultures shape how men pick up women, to an honest analysis of whether to invite white friends to Southside restaurants, “Tour Guides” offers an unflinching look at Chicago’s complex cultural landscape.
“Tour Guides” will be at The Beverly Art Center, 2407 W 111th St, on Friday April 5 and Saturday April 6, 2013 at 7:30 pm and Sunday April 7 at 3:30 pm. Tickets are $16/$13 for BAC members.
Coya Paz is poet, director, and lip gloss connoisseur. She is the Lead Artist for the Poetry Performance Incubator at The Guld Complex, a founding member of Proyecto Latina, and a member of the artistic team at Free Street Theatre. She teaches in The Theatre School at DePaul University.
