JUNO (a live reading)
Sunday, August 28th
By Diablo Cody
Music Box Theatre
3733 N. Southport Ave.
Join us for our SEASON SEVEN FUNDRAISER.
Help us kick off our "Flesh and Blood" season with a live reading of Diablo Cody's Juno, a story about parenthood, growing up, and the complicated circus that is the modern American Family. Along with our programmed plays, Interrobang is proud to present JUNO as a humor filled and poignant work by a fearless female author.
Juno was Cody's debut script, winning both the BAFTA and Academy Awards for Best Original Screenplay. She went on to write and produce Showtime's United States of Tara television series, and the feature films, Jennifer's Body (2009) and Young Adult (2011). Paradise, her directorial debut, was released in 2013. All proceeds from this event will go to support our Seventh 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 seventh 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 six 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.”
