Pancake Breakfast
Ran November 27, 2010 - December 19, 2010

For the Malloy family, attendance at the annual Independence Day reunion is mandatory. Pancake Breakfast is the one chance for everyone to get together all year. For Beatrice Malloy, however, the weekend devolves into coping drunk. With her younger brother learning to live with Asperger Syndrome, a father newly-wed to a woman half his age, a mother juggling ex-husbands, and a grandfather who seems to live on the fringe of rationality, Beatrice realizes that the once shining Malloy family has come undone. In between watermelon eating contests, turtle racing and a crab feast, Pancake Breakfast- asks the question: “If family is such a bitch, why do we keep coming back for more?”. Syrup is included.

The Viaduct Theater

3111 North Western Avenue
Chicago, IL 60618-6409
(773) 296-6024

The Viaduct theater is located in the heart of Roscoe Village on the east side of lower Western Ave, just south of the Western / Belmont / Clybourn intersection. It is accessible on both the Belmont and Western bus routes and by bus transfer from the Red and Blue El lines.

Street parking is available on Clybourn and Barry (a portion of Barry requires a permit), and metered parking on Belmont. Additionally, there is now a parking lot across the street @ the southwest corner of Belmont and Western. The charge is $5 and we ask that you please pay inside at the box office or bar.

Please note that parking underneath the viaduct is now illegal.  Parking in front of the theater, due to conflicting regulation signs, as well as behind the theater is completely at your own risk.

"Barely into its third season, The New Colony continues to prove itself as one of Chicago's essential off-Loop companies."
Talkin' Broadway
"Pancake Breakfast balances glorious sentiment, acrid bitterness, and all the hope and fear of unsolvable real life with awesome grace and polish in both performance and staging."
