Known for their imaginative and epic theatrical works of science fiction and fantasy, Chicago's Otherworld Theatre now presents the world premiere of their adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' A Princess of Mars. A Confederate deserter, John Carter's world is turned upside down when he finds himself mysteriously transported to the surface of Mars, where he is forced into a colossal conflict between the planet's alien races. Poised on the edge of collapse, the planet's fate comes to rest on Carter's war-weary shoulders and now he must choose sides. Filled with extraterrestrial environments, epic battles, elaborate costuming and more, A Princess of Mars at Berger Park promises to whisk you away on an unforgettable theatrical adventure.
