Cory Doctorow's Little Brother on stage in Chicago

Chicago's Griffin Theatre has mounted a live production of Cory Doctorow's young adult novel Little Brother, adapted by William Massolia. Cory writes, "This is incredibly exciting; Time Out Chicago gave it four stars, saying, 'Doctorow raises many worthy points about the relationship between our safeties and our freedoms, and in this bracing production, newcomer Mike Harvey as Marcus makes a confident tour guide.' Bill Shunn, writing in Sci-Fi Wire, said, 'Little Brother is an exciting and thought-provoking production, imaginatively staged on a bare-bones set with some multimedia elements stirred in.'"

Little Brother runs Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and Sundays at 3 p.m., through July 19 at the Athenaeum Theatre, 2936 North Southport Avenue, Chicago, Illinois. Tickets are $15-$25, from 800-982-2787. More information, here.

The play is directed by Dorothy Milne, who previously worked with Massolia on the Griffin's 2005 adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Stardust.
