Founded in 2000, the side project moved into new digs (just steps away) in Jarvis Square. The 43-seat theater features a spacious lobby (with city-mandated drinking fountain!) and concession stand. Their four-show season of local and world premiere plays is accented by year-round staged readings, an annual one-act festival and a Visiting Artist Series.
The side project has produced more than 25 shows, including the world premiere of "The 4th Graders Present an Unnamed Love-Suicide" and "Maggie: A Girl of the Streets," which were both named on "Best Shows of the Year" lists for 2003 and 2004 respectively. The company also produced a 25th Anniversary production of 1979 Tony Award-winner "The Elephant Man" as well as the Chicago premiere of the award-winning race-relations drama, "Innocent Thoughts" and the original 6-month run of "Sock Puppet Showgirls."
