the plays

Our 2014-15 season entirely comprises world and Chicago premieres.

Please join as an ATC member, so that you will have opportunity to see all of these plays at the best price!

Anna Deavere Smith's Let Me Down Easy and Michael Milligan's Mercy Strain, both in their Chicago premieres, will provide critical exploration of topical healthcare issues during the run-up to the 2014 elections.

Stephen Karam's (Sons of the Prophet, Speech & Debate) new drama The Humans will have its world premiere on ATC's intimate stage under special arrangement with New York’s Roundabout Theatre Company where it will subsequently receive its New York premiere.

The Midwest premiere of Marco Ramirez' (Sons of Anarchy, Orange is the New Black) riveting play The Royale addresses what it meant to be a powerful black man in early 20th Century America. Chicago Public School students served by ATC's education program Mosaic will study The Royale in their 9th-grade classrooms, then put on their own version on ATC's stage before seeing the professional production.

The Project(s), a new play conceived, co-written, and directed by ATC Artistic Director PJ Paparelli and co-written by Joshua Jaeger, combines documentary theatre, a capella music, and stepping to create a provocative examination of the successes and failures of public housing that poses the question, "What is America's responsibility to its poor?"

ATC has gained national recognition as a source for innovative new plays that go on to critical acclaim in New York and at major regional theaters, including the world premiere of Ayad Akhtar's Disgraced that won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Membership is one of the best ways support ATC's exciting new work for Chicago audiences including the CPS students served in our tuition-free education programs.

from the Artistic Director

Dear Member of the ATC Family,

Season 30 is all new work. The best way to celebrate our 30th anniversary is by investing in the future and boldly committing ourselves to world premieres. We anticipate an exciting season with new American plays tackling relevant issues. We strongly believe in Chicago's role in nurturing new plays and musicals, taking part in a larger conversation. ATC is honored to be working together with some of the most passionate and talented creative minds in the business.

Your Artistic Director,



Coming Soon!
