Heeding warnings from state officials and medical professionals, the Writers Theatre  announced it will cancel the final four performances of “Stick Fly” and suspend showings of “The Last Match” for 30 days, according to a release sent Friday, March 13. 

The Writers Theatre release said the theater hopes to resume performances of “The Last Match” after April 15 and move forward as planned with “Mementos Mori,” set for a May 6 premiere.

It added that the box office will work with patrons who already have tickets, offering exchanges or a tax deduction.

“The WT Box Office will be handling a significant number of inquiries and they appreciate the patience of its patrons,” the release says. “Patrons should not feel like they must contact the Box Office immediately. The Box Office will be in touch to follow up with all patrons in the weeks ahead.”

Medical professionals have warned against gatherings of more than 250 people, a recommendation repeated by Ill. Gov. J.B Pritzker on Friday, March 13.
