Private Passage
By Louise Bylicki and James Serpento

Twenty-something Drew is on the cusp of professional success. When she becomes pregnant, she must confront the painful memories of her sister, Phoebe, who became pregnant as a teenager, and whose thwarted search for an abortion brought catastrophic results to their entire family. Private Passage was commissioned and first produced by Chicago’s Odyssey Theatre Company in 1991, in which actresses Robin Kersey and Deanna Dunagan earned Joseph Jefferson Award nominations (Ms. Dunagan would go on to win the Tony Award for August: Osage County). The play was revived in 2000 by Chicago’s Stage Left Theatre Company, and underwent substantial revision, in a production directed by Jessi D. Hill. The Chicago Reader’s Adam Langer described Private Passage as “part straightforward play, part theatrical collage, and part factual discourse. . . . a play that tries appealing to both emotion and reason. And it succeeds.”
