Hurrah for the Next Who Dies!

  • by Mark Mason
  • directed by Damon Kiely
  • On June 9, 1930, Chicago Tribune reporter Jake Lingle was gunned down. Set in the "separate and lonely places" of Capone’s Chicago, HURRAH FOR THE NEXT WHO DIES examines the scandals, killings and betrayals surrounding Lingle's death. Mason’s thought-provoking new play reveals the dangerous pairing of violence and corrupt media that defined a dark time in Chicago's not-too-distant history, and serves as a warning for the future of truth in the Windy City.
