Piccolo Teatro di Milano: Inner Voices

May 21, 2013 1944

Chicago Shakespeare joins the Italian Ministry of Cultural Affairs and Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago to commemorate the Year of Italian Culture in America. First written and performed in Milano in 1948, Inner Voices tells the story of a man who dreams the murder of a friend so vividly that he believes the crime has actually been committed by his neighbors' family. This gripping production features Toni Servillo, hailed by The New York Times as "the best Italian stage and screen actor of his generation," leading a multi-generational cast of celebrated Neapolitan actors. It also marks the return of Italy's renowned Piccolo Teatro di Milano, which last played Chicago in 2005 when CST presented Arlecchino, Servant of Two Masters.

Inner Voices has been coproduced with Teatri Uniti from Naples and Teatro di Roma.
