SEASON EIGHT PREVIEW

Stage-Placeholder-Foxfinder-Web.jpg
In a wan year for new writing, Dawn King’s play shines out like a beacon. Winner of the Papatango playwriting competition, it may display the influence of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible and have echoes of Kafka, but it remains an arresting and individual work that haunts the mind long after you’ve seen it.
— The Guardian (2011)

Stage Placeholder Tint 02 Grace.jpg
This is a darkly comic, eerily tragic, wholly timely play . . . [Wright] is one of the most searing and incisive observers of male-female relationships, faithfulness and broken faith.
— Chicago Sun-Times

Stage Placeholder Tint 02 For the Loyal.jpg
‘For the Loyal’ is a provocative little play that moves beyond kitchen-sink realism and into flights of imagination to examine the moral choices and complexity of sexual abuse — and our response to the crime.
— Minneapolis StarTribune

SEASON SEVEN

Flesh and Blood

 
 

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.” 

And this past season (2016-2017) ITP has been nominated for seven Jeff Awards:
