Season tickets are now on sale for Clockwise Theatre's 2014-15 season. Clockwise, a Waukegan-based company devoted to presenting works by and about Midwesterners, recently announced an expanded four-play season and a new partnership with Evanston-based Piven Theatre Workshop for an after-school program.

First on the bill is a Chicago-area revival of Mia McCullough's "Impenetrable," a comic drama dealing with body image issues and a controversy that erupts when a blatant plastic surgery billboard goes up in town. "Impenetrable" plays Oct. 10 through Nov. 2.

"Captain Superlative" by Highland Park playwright Jessica Puller is the company's first holiday show, and it deals with a middle school student with superhero ambitions. "Captain Superlative" plays Nov. 21 through Dec. 14.

"Mr. Benny," a one-man show by playwright Mark Humphrey, focuses on the life and times of legendary comedian Jack Benny, who grew up in Waukegan. "Mr. Benny" plays Jan. 29 through Feb. 15.

Concluding the season is Patrick Gabridge's dark comedy "Constant State of Panic," which explores how threat levels and secret surveillance affects a marriage. The play runs April 17 to May 10.

Individual show tickets are $20, though audiences can save with a season subscription for $65.
