"★★★★ This is a wonderful adaptation and a wonderful production... That Lifeline succeeds on all counts is a tribute to Kauzlaric’s excellent script and director Ilesa Duncan... The entire ensemble is excellent."  –
"A bracing, breathtaking good time... Audiences looking for the perfect escapist comic drama, filled with action and adventure, should look no further than the current [offering] at this jewel of Rogers Park."  –Chicago Theatre Review
"Can’t-miss epic fantasy with deep meaning and dark humor, a fitting tribute to Gaiman and his boundless creativity."  –Chicago Theater Beat

Richard Mayhew commits an act of kindness on the streets of London and finds himself trapped in a shadow world beneath the city. Lady Door returns home one day to find her family slain and her life upended. Drawn together by fate – and forces more powerful than they can guess – these two must brave countless trials, uncover the truth behind a dark conspiracy, and face the indomitable Great Beast before they can set things right again. Journey to London Below with a rogues’ gallery of liars, outcasts, and assassins, on a treacherous quest to awaken the hero within, in a new production of Lifeline’s hit adaptation of the 1996 novel by Neil Gaiman.

Based on the novel by Neil Gaiman
Adapted by Robert Kauzlaric
Directed by Ilesa Duncan

Neil Gaiman’s novel suggests that every city has a city below and each city has a price to pay. As part of our production of Neverwhere, Lifeline is curating “Chicago Below” — an lobby exhibit of images of the Chicago that lives just underneath the glittering parts of the city: the alleys, subways, viaducts and darker places of our own city.
