On his morning bike ride on a local trail, Jerry comes upon a sign: DANGER: MOUNTAIN LION IN AREA. He avoids an encounter with the predator, but as his day unfolds the presence of wildlife in the city becomes more and more pronounced… and more and more peculiar! Animals are appearing, people are disappearing – is there a connection? Are the animals launching an attack on the humans annexing their territory or is there a more fundamental change afoot? Along with his friends, Bernard (a university professor) and Lily (a waitress), Jerry tries to discover an explanation for the transformations happening around him, all the while fighting off the animal world and clinging to the unique qualities that make us human beings.

The Emerging Voices Project was created to contribute to the development of new work in the Chicago theatre scene and to bring opportunities to the Triton College community to work with professional playwrights.

This season, we are once again privileged to host a Resident Playwright from Chicago Dramatists, Chicago’s premiere play development company and the artistically-acclaimed home for writers working at the forefront of American theatre.
