Season eight fundraiser
June 4 (6-9 pm)
WHAT IS TRUTH?
Join us for an evening of entertainment featuring a staged reading from the iconic television series, The X-Files, a Mulder & Scully look-alike contest, and an Out-Of-This-World raffle.
FBI agents Dana Scully's and Fox Mulder's investigations into the strange and unexplained are a perfect introduction to our eighth season. Continuing with our mission to produce rarely seen shows with relevant themes and raw emotions, Interrobang is thrilled that Season Eight will include three plays that all ask the timely question: What is truth?
Tickets are $30 and include Open Beer/Wine Bar and Bites.
All proceeds from this event will go to benefit Interrobang’s eighth producing season.
Flesh and Blood
For those wondering, "Whats an interrobang?", it is the combination of a question mark and exclamation point, joining the Latin word for “question” (interro) with a proofreading term for “exclamation” (bang). Through the plays we produce, Interrobang Theatre Project aims to pose questions that challenge our understanding and assumptions of who we are and the world in which we live.
Interrobang Theatre Project (ITP) produces visceral and timely works, rarely produced texts, and new American plays. We strive to excite a new generation of theatergoers, to engage our community through challenging plays, to maintain an environment in which artists can do their very best work, and to change our world one play at a time. ITP is not recommended for audiences who prefer theatre to be benign or familiar.
Now in its eighth season, ITP is under the artistic leadership of James Yost and Georgette Verdin. Founded in 2010 by Jeffry Stanton, ITP has been hailed by the Chicago Tribune as a “company to watch” and by Time Out Chicago as “one of Chicago’s most promising young theatre companies.”
Over the past seven seasons, productions have included the world premiere of Ibsen is Dead by Calamity West, the Midwest premiere of The Argument by Gregory Moss, the Jeff Award Recommended The Pitchfork Disney, Terminus, Orange Flower Water, Speaking in Tongues, Here Lies Henry, Really Really, Recent Tragic Events, and the critically-acclaimed Hot ‘N’ Throbbing, which Time Out Chicago’s 5-star review called a “scintillating revival.”
And this past season (2016-2017) ITP has been nominated for seven Jeff Awards:
