Attend the premiere of Adventure Stage Chicago’s production set in the future that completely reimagines the myths of Prometheus and Pandora. The story follows young Pan who lives a regimented life within the underground tunnels of Sanctuary, a secluded community designed to outlast the raging violence outside its walls. But is Pan's home the safe haven she has always believed it to be or a prison built on lies and fear? Written by Tom Arvetis and directed by Rives Collins, SPARK runs throughout the weekend and tickets cost between $15 to $25.
