Trust. Betrayal. Loyalty. Humiliation. That’s what friends are for. Grace and Lorna have been inseparable since childhood, and vow one day to get out of their small English town and make something of themselves. But the world has different plans. An honest and brutal depiction of companionship, rivalry and the fiery bond that exists between women, Out of Love bravely examines one life-long friendship in all its beautiful, gory complexity.

Elinor Cook was the winner of the George Devine Award 2013 for Most Promising Playwright and a finalist for the Susan Smith Blackburn Award 2018. She is currently writing an episode of Killing Eve series 3. MORE >>

No Man’s Land


Season Ten begins August, 2019.


The recipient of 2019's Broadway in Chicago Emerging Theatre award, Interrobang Theatre Project, now in its 10th season and under the artistic leadership of Georgette Verdin, 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.”

Interrobang Theatre Project is also proud to be in residence at Rivendell Theatre, located at 5779 N Ridge Ave in the Edgewater neighborhood. 


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 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.”
