Chicon 7 Presents Theatrical Double Bill of Neil Gaiman Stories

There is more to Chicon besides the Sidewise Awards. Chicon 7, the 70th World Science Fiction Convention (Worldcon), is pleased to announce a theatrical double bill of plays adapted from two short stories by multiple Hugo award-winning author and screenwriter Neil Gaiman. In "Snow, Glass, Apples" Gaiman dissects the disturbing reasons for Snow White's snow-white skin and blood-red lips, while in "Troll Bridge" he replaces the Three Billy Goats Gruff with a feckless boy named Jack who carelessly trip-traps over the fateful bridge.

The Gaiman Theatre presentation is a co-production by Pintig Theatre (Chicago) and Socratic Theatre Collective (Toronto) in association with Tattle Tale Theatre (Dublin). The plays are directed by Ruth Pe Palileo and Liz Bragg.

The plays will be presented on the afternoons of Friday, August 31 and Saturday, September 1 as part of Chicon 7's extensive range of special events. Attendance will be open to Chicon 7 Adult and Young Adult members only as the material includes mature content.
