'Failure: A Love Story' concludes Clague Playhouse's 95th season

Noah Pekari as Mortimer Mortimer, Persis Sosiak as Gertrude Fail and Assad Khaishgi as John N. Fail

Follow Mortimer Mortimer as he falls in love with the three Fail sisters – Nelly, the youngest, Jenny June, the middlest, and Gerty, the eldest – as they live out their lives above the family clock repair shop near the Chicago River, before their time unexpectedly runs out.
