Featuring: Chiquita Camille, Lamar K. Cheston, Andrew Huber, and Alexis Rhianon

Sign of The Times “updates William butler Yeats’ poem ‘The Second Coming’ for our current age of diminishing expectations.” – The Chicago Reader

Sign of The Times offers “a universal message packed with thoughts and reflections.”

- Kambuika Kamunga – WBEZ Radio


“Jeff Helgeson’s dedication to experiment, surprise, twisted absurdities, and language

Reflect and refract in Sign of The Times.

- Marc Smith

The music that has been composed by Clayton Horath for Sign of The Times was designed as a chamber piece for fourteen musicians. Like the play itself, the music seeks to explore the issue of the use of allusion in an era when everything is derivative and yet nothing is thought to be referential.

Sections of the composition are: “Future Shock,” “The Question Why?“The Vicious Circle as God”, “The Seduction of Unreason,” and “Now-morrow Dawns.”
