Lady in Denmark

Oct 19 - Nov 18, 2018 In the Owen
Approximate running time: 90 minutes, no intermission

Every memory has a soundtrack of its own.

After the death of her husband, a Danish American woman finds solace in the hauntingly beautiful music of their favorite singer, Billie Holiday. A journey through the couple’s time together—from the smoky jazz clubs of post-war Copenhagen, to the home they shared in present-day Chicago—Lady in Denmark is a passionate reflection on life and love written by Pulitzer Prize finalist Dael Orlandersmith, “one of the country’s top talents” (Time Out Chicago).
