That's followed on Jan. 28, 2015, with Neil Simon's "Laughter on the 23rd Floor," about the playwright's experiences writing for Sid Caesar TV show, "Your Show of Shows." Ensemble members Kevin McKillip and Rene Ruelas star.

The women of First Folio -- Lydia Berger, Melanie Keller, Hayley L. Rice and Alison C. Vesely -- co-star in "Love, Loss and What I Wore" (March 26-April 26, 2015). The play, adapted by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron from the book by Ilene Beckerman, examines the role fashion plays in a woman's milestone moments.

The company's 2014-15 season concludes under the stars with a production of Shakespeare's "The Winter's Tale," about a king whose jealousy leads to the death of his wife and estrangement from his daughter.

Performances take place at the Mayslake Peabody Estate, 1717 W. 31st St., Oak Brook. Subscriptions start at $55, with a $5 discount for those purchased by Aug. 15.

Subscriptions and individual tickets are available online at firstfolio.org or by phone at (630) 986-8067.
