July 10 - August 19 In the Owen
Approximate running time: 80 minutes with no intermission

Stacy Keach triumphantly returns to the Goodman in a  tour-de-force performance as legendary author Ernest Hemingway.

After the prize comes the pressure. Five years after receiving career-defining awards, Ernest Hemingway faces a looming deadline for a story about the rivalrous matadors of Pamplona. In declining health and consumed by the demise of his fourth marriage, he must now conquer the despair that threatens to engulf him.
