VGB’s Relatively Close

From July ’08 Spotlight:  Also recommended is James Sheridan’s new play Relatively Close, a comedy about three sisters with different ideas about how to allocate family property now that both parents are deceased. Looked at as individuals, there’s nothing very Jewish about these sisters, and they don’t go about their negotiations in any specifically Jewish way, but the pace is brisk, the writing is sharp, and the moral injunction to treat your own family better when you leave the theater is all the weight required on a summer evening.

Relatively Close will be at the Victory Gardens Biograph on North Lincoln Avenue in Chicago through July 13. For tickets, call the VGB box office at (773) 871-3000 or visit their website:
