Beginning tonight, April 10, 2021, Chicago’s Kane Repertory Theatre presents the world premiere online production of Hammaad Chaudry’s Security, directed by Executive Producer Ansley Valentine, premieres online April 10-May 2, 2021 (with plans for an in-person production when it is safe). The cast includes Academy Award and three-time Golden Globe nominee Eric Roberts (Brian) and Harsh J. Gagoomal (Riaz).

A 17 year old Riaz arrives from Britain to the United States for the first time and is stopped at the airport by a Homeland Security officer named Brian. The experience will change Riaz’s life forever. Thirteen years later, a grown up Riaz returns to the United States, hunts down Brian at his home, and now interrogates him—it’s time to return the favor.

The online production will be a blend of film and theatre. Green screens and professional film set-ups will be sent to the cast in their individual locations, and with the with the work of a top-notch video editor, the final production will look and feel as if both actors are sharing the same space.

Tickets for the online production are $25 per household or $10 per adult, $8 per senior and $5 per student.
