JACOB, written by Provision Theater Founding Artistic Director Timothy Gregory, will have its World Premiere May 7 – June 15, 2014 at Provision Theater in Chicago, co-directed by Provision Company Member Lia Mortensen and Artistic Director Tim Gregory.

JACOB, based on the story of Jacob wrestling with God from the book of Genesis, is the tale of twin brothers consumed with a deadly secret and a murderous rivalry. The Isaacsons, a wealthy Chicago family, are being torn apart by the un-civil war of it’s members and it all comes to a head¬†one night when Jacob’s dark world of fear, manipulation and deception collides with a supernatural force of truth and redemption.¬†JACOB is a play about our own struggles of fear, powerlessness and suffering and the quest to free ourselves from those shackles.
