CHICAGO — A 20-year-old Chicago drama about the aftermath of a school shooting, and its impact on the mother of the killer, goes before the cameras next month, marking the feature directorial debut of two-time Oscar nominee and Chicago theater veteran Michael Shannon.

Set in fictional Eastlake, Illinois, “Eric LaRue” is being adapted for the screen by the playwright and screenwriter Brett Neveu, Shannon’s frequent collaborator on productions staged by A Red Orchid Theatre. Neveu’s drama premiered at A Red Orchid in 2002. In 2005, the play was selected for the Royal Shakespeare Company’s “Postcards from America” series.

Jan. 6 hearings traced an arc of 'carnage' wrought by Trump

The Jan. 6 congressional hearings have paused, at least for now, and Washington is taking stock of what was learned about the actions of Donald Trump and associates surrounding the Capitol attack. The Justice Department also watched with interest as each of the eight sessions revealed new information that could figure into a potential prosecution of the ex-president. The House committee exposed or fleshed out behind-the-scenes scheming that revealed the lengths Trump and his enablers wanted to go to keep him in power. Though the summer hearings are over, the inquiry presses on and the panel expects to reconvene in September.

Jan. 6 probes: What's next for Congress, criminal cases

Wes Moore, a first-time candidate for elected office who built an energetic campaign against a crowded and robust field, has won the Democratic nomination for Maryland governor.

A Chinese court has overruled a rare legal challenge brought by an unmarried Beijing woman seeking the right to freeze her eggs. The Chaoyang Intermediate People’s Court in Beijing said in a judgment that the hospital did not violate the woman’s rights in denying her access to freeze her eggs. Teresa Xu received the court judgment Friday, almost three years after she first brought the case. In China, national law does not explicitly ban unmarried people from services like fertility treatments. In practice, however, unmarried women who choose to have children have struggled to access public benefits like maternity leave or coverage for prenatal exams without a marriage license.

BALTIMORE — Move the walls back, make them higher. It doesn’t matter to Aaron Judge. The Yankees slugger hammered his longest home run of the season Friday night over the pushed-back left-center field wall at Camden Yards. He hit a second, and the Yankees needed every inch of his 901 combine…

Matthew Tkachuk is being traded to the Florida Panthers, part of a blockbuster that sends Jonathan Huberdeau to the Calgary Flames in a swap of players who are each coming off the best season of their respective careers,. Tkachuk signed an eight-year contract with Florida as part of the deal. Tkachuk decided earlier in the week that he would not accept such a deal to stay in Calgary — which immediately led to trade talks and no shortage of suitors around the league wanting to land him.

Sydney McLaughlin shattered her world record by a whopping 0.73 seconds, blazing through the 400-meter hurdles in 50.68 seconds for her first title at world championships. The 22-year-old obliterated the field in setting the first world record of these championships in Eugene, Oregon. More impressively, it marked the fourth straight major race in which she’s bettered the mark. Femke Bol of the Netherlands finished second in 52.27 — that’s a 1.59-second difference — and defending world champion Dalilah Muhammad finished third in 53.13 — a time that would’ve won the race going away a mere seven years ago.

BOSTON — Embarrassing. Ugly. Humiliating. Pathetic.

Raimel Tapia hit an inside-the-park grand slam after a misplay by Boston center fielder Jarren Duran and the Toronto Blue Jays set a franchise record for runs in a game, rolling past the Red Sox 28-5. Toronto came within two runs of the modern major league record for runs in a game after stranding two in the ninth inning with Boston infielder Yolmer Sanchez on the mound. Every starter had at least two hits, and Lourdes Gurriel Jr. tied Frank Catalanotto’s franchise record with six of them. Danny Jansen homered twice and drove in six runs. Matt Chapman and Teoscar Hernández added solo home runs for the Blue Jays.

NEW YORK — The threat of a storm that never actually made its way to the Queens portion of New York delayed the start of the season’s second half for the Padres.

Shohei Ohtani threw six dominant innings, only to surrender homers to Matt Olson and Orlando Arcia in an outburst that carried the Atlanta Braves to an 8-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels. The reigning World Series champions resumed their winning ways after the All-Star break. They got six shutout innings from Charlie Morton and a sudden, shocking dose of offense. For much of the night, they had been totally overmatched by Ohtani, who faced only one batter above the minimum through the first six frames while striking out 11. Then it all fell apart.

PHILADELPHIA — Philadelphia Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto understands better than almost anyone what awaits Willson Contreras in the offseason.

Yu Darvish dominated the New York Mets again, and Eric Hosmer hit a two-run homer off Max Scherzer that sent the San Diego Padres to a 4-1 victory. Trent Grisham also went deep for the Padres in the opener of a three-game series between NL playoff contenders coming out of the All-Star break. Darvish struck out nine and walked one in seven sparkling innings. He allowed four hits, including a two-out RBI double by Luis Guillorme that spoiled the shutout bid in the seventh. Nick Martinez worked a perfect eighth and Taylor Rogers got three outs for his 27th save in 32 attempts.

Alyssa Thomas had the first triple-double in franchise history, DeWanna Bonner scored 20 points on 8-of-12 shooting and the Connecticut Sun never trailed in their 94-84 win over the Minnesota Lynx. Thomas made 7 of 13 from the field and finished with 15 points, 10 rebounds, 12 assists — the 17th triple-double in WNBA history — and three steals. Courtney Williams also scored 15 points for Connecticut (18-9). Aerial Powers led the Lynx with 14 points and Rachel Banham added 11. Sylvia Fowles, Kayla McBride and Nikolina Milic scored 12 points apiece. Minnesota (10-18), which has eight regular season games remaining, is two games back of eighth-place Dallas for the final playoff berth.
