COMING SOON

 

By Lee Blessing
Directed by Co-Artistic Director James Yost

January 6 - February 4, 2018

For Toby and Mia, college football and family are one and the same; he has a new coaching job for a top team, and they are happily expecting their first born. But when Toby gets Mia enmeshed in an unseemly team secret, she is forced to decide where her loyalties truly lie. Inspired by the Penn State sexual abuse scandal, FOR THE LOYAL takes an unconventional and provocative look at how one woman traverses a no-win situation. 

Lee Blessing’s play A Walk in the Woods was produced on Broadway and London's West End. The Signature Theatre dedicated its 1992-93 season to his work, consisting of Fortinbras, Lake Street Extension, Two Rooms and the world premiere of Patient AHe has received nominations for Tony and Olivier awards, as well as the Pulitzer Prize. He heads the graduate playwriting program at Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University.

SEASON EIGHT

WHAT IS TRUTH?

 
 

ABOUT US

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. 

MISSION

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.

HISTORY

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, TerminusOrange 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.” 
 

During the 2016-2017 season, ITP was nominated for seven Jeff Awards, winning two:
