Rec Room Arts presents Sender
Rec Room Arts will present Sender, a raucous new comedy by Chicago-based playwright Ike Holter, recent recipient of the Windham-Campbell Literature Prize for Drama and author of notable works Exit Strategy and Hit The Wall. In Sender, Holter utilizes his signature rich, lyrical, rapid-fire language as he presents a millennial-centric, pressure-cooker of a world that’s edgy, challenging, socially relevant, and hilarious.
A year after faking his own death, Lynx, played by Houston Press Best Supporting Actor Jeremy Gee, shows up on the back porch of his former Chicago apartment alive and well and ready to pick up where he left off with his long-suffering girlfriend Tess, played by Stephanie Wittels Wachs. Lynx is shocked to discover that she isn’t exactly rolling out the red carpet. He is soon confronted by Cassandra, played by powerhouse Candice d’Meza, the only actual adult in the group, and her new husband and father of her unborn child, Jordan, played by Gabriel Regojo. Jordan recently got a “real” job at Groupon and has moved out to the ‘burbs, but his life is thrown into a state of utter chaos when he discovers the best friend he eulogized, memorialized, searched for, and mourned is still very much alive.
