Milwaukee Chamber Theatre has an eye for picking out just the right new work to bring to Cream City, and Slowgirl looks to continue that fine tradition. The two-hander depicts a teenage girl fleeing the consequences of a potentially fatal house party and the reclusive, secretive uncle whose Costa Rican retreat she impulsively arrives at. Over the course of 90 minutes, these two self-imposed exiles will be forced to reveal details from their pasts, own them and, maybe, get on with their lives.
At the Broadway Theatre Center, Milwaukee. Tickets are $38 and $34; $25 preview. For more information visit milwaukeechambertheatre.com.
