Novelist Fern Chertkow was beautiful, smart and talented. She was also a close friend of Evanston resident Richard Engling. That’s why her suicide in 1988 hit Engling hard. Engling, who is co-founder and artistic director of Polarity Ensemble Theatre, is honoring his late friend with “The Afterlife Trilogy,” a compilation of “She Plays in Darkness” by Chertkow; his novel, “Visions of Anna;” and Engling’s play “Anna in the Afterlife.”
