REEKING of INDISCRETION: Madame X's Allerton

Writer: Patrick Thomas McCarthy ptmc
Director: Patrick Aran

The Chicago Tribune’s Madame X, society doyenne Caroline Kirkland (1865-1930) declared Robert Allerton (1873–1964) Chicago’s most eligible bachelor in 1906. His personal relationship with Caroline Kirkland, both in high society & everyday life, & his intimate relationship with John Wyatt Gregg (1899-1986), his longtime companion, adopted-as-an-adult son, are best imagined by inventing what their correspondence might have been.

Readers' theatre with a twist. An epistolary intrigue of historical truth, fiction & LGBTQ issues.
