Chicago Premiere!

By Deborah Zoe Laufer
Directed by SGT Producing Artistic Director Sandy Shinner

“…in a time that often feels like nothing matters, Be Here Now bursts through the gloom and offers a new and uplifting perspective.”   – Critics Pick, City Beat

Featuring SGT Ensemble members Deanna Reed-Foster, Rebecca Jordan, and Joe Wiens, with Protégé Alumna Demetra Dee

Bari, an atheist and misanthrope, loses her job teaching nihilism in NYC and ends up working in a fulfillment center in her small hometown. Her empathetic co-workers push her toward yoga, meditation, and a blind date in the pursuit of happiness. But recently, her recurring headaches have gotten more intense, manifesting as ecstatic and almost religious experiences—and they are changing her entire outlook. She’s almost… happy! When she finds out that these rapturous headaches may be killing her, Bari needs to choose: does she live a shortened, joyful life—or does she risk a return to her past life of misery. Be Here Now takes audiences on a hilarious and poignant quest for meaning in modern life.

Global Perspectives post-show discussions follow each Sunday matinee performance.

Performances take place at Theater Wit (1229 W Belmont) where SGT is a resident company.
