A new comedy by CRAIG WRIGHT
Directed by DEXTER BULLARD
Starring Academy Award® Nominee MICHAEL SHANNON and MIERKA GIRTEN
Mistakes Were Made is an hilarious, but also deeply moving character study of a man seeking redemption, but inescapably creating destruction. Felix Artifex, a B-list Off-Broadway producer, gets in way over his fast-talking head when he takes on a gargantuan epic about the French Revolution which he thinks is going to be his ticket to professional and personal reclamation. While trying to land a big star for the lead role, he uses all his powers of persuasion, seduction and intimidation to strong-arm the writer into massively rewriting his play. At the same time, he attempts to reconnect with his estranged wife and untangle himself from a mess involving sheep in a distant war-torn country.

"MICHAEL SHANNON IS AS THRILLING AS THEY COME!"- Slant Magazine
"Wright’s play is a doozy – a deceptively deep, fiendishly mapped look at warped priorities, artistic compromise and hunger for success. Crackingly smart, hugely entertaining satire."- Chicago Sun Times
"… pure, unadulterated Michael Shannon… Wright’s new comedy is an automatic recommend."- Time Out Chicago
"A performance so riveting it takes you on a roller coaster. Delivers the thrills of an entire theme park."- Chicago Stage Review
"Director Dexter Bullard has orchestrated this ever-escalating farce of warped thinking, to perfection. Wright's play is a tour de force, and Shannon matches him insanity for insanity."- The Chicago Theater Review Examiner
