The House Theatre of Chicago at Adrienne Arsht Center
for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County

May 4th - May 19th, 2019

Adapted and Directed by Vanessa Stalling

WINNER of the 2016 Jeff Awards for Best Production of a Play (Midsize) and Best Ensemble

“I love you, hurry home. I love you.” On July 19, 1989, a DC-10 headed for O’Hare with 296 aboard is paralyzed mid-air. For 44 minutes, the aircraft descended towards an emergency landing and crashed at Sioux City Gateway airport. To the astonishment of all who witnessed the event, 184 of 296 passengers and crew survived. Drawing on the interviews and research conducted by Evanston author Laurence Gonzales for his critically acclaimed book, Flight 232: A Story of Disaster and Survival, this brand new play, United Flight 232, is a reflection on how to comprehend tragedy and celebrate human ingenuity in the face of overwhelming challenges.
