From the award-winning Shared Experience Theatre Company in the U.K. comes this spirited adaptation of Charlotte Brontë's epic story of a young woman searching for a sense of self in a man's world.

A show and a drink, what more could you want? Enjoy one of four shows (or all of them!) at Connelly's Public House in the Chicago area. "Death Trap" tells the tale of Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers who is struggling with a recent dry spell and a shortage of funds.

A unique and romantic theatre piece, "Love Letters" finds two childhood friends who maintain lifelong correspondence through letters. The entertaining "Deathtrap" follows a washed out playwright who finds potential success for the next big hit in a former student's script. Finally, "Mrs. Coney" is a heartwarming Christmas play that follows a writer as he remembers his Oklahoma homestead during the dust bowl. Your ticket includes one drink ticket redeemable for a draft beer, well liquor drink or selected wines. [less-]
