July 24, 1915: Moored on the Chicago River between Clark Street and LaSalle, The Eastland begins boarding and thousands of Western Electric employees and their families climb the ramp, excited for their annual company outing. Overflowing with passengers about to depart, the boat leans port -- and doesn\'t lean back. Within minutes, cries fill the air, families are torn apart and unexpected heroes emerge to rescue dozens of Chicagoans from a watery end.

Artistic Director Andrew White (\"Of One Blood,\" \"1984\") resurrects the ghosts of America\'s forgotten tragedy in his Lookingglass Original musical, with music by Artistic Associate Andre Pluess and Ben Sussman, the team behind the score of \"Lookingglass Alice,\" \"1984,\" \"Metamorphoses,\" \"Hard Times,\" and \"The Secret in the Wings,\" as well as the acclaimed \"Winesburg, Ohio.\" Directed by Amanda Dehnert (\"Peter Pan: A Play\").

\"Eastland\" is the recipient of the Edgerton New American Play Award.
