The Story Theatre's New Play Festival

The Story is committed to the next great plays to come out of Chicago, and that commitment doesn't waver even in times of uncertainty. Our New Play Festival this fall uplifts the work of three Chicago playwrights through a week-long celebration of new work, including: three Zoom readings featuring local Chicago talent; interviews with directors, designers, and writers; a panel by The Story Governing Ensemble; and a dialogue with arts advocates from around our city who are determined to keep our industry alive. Check back soon for more information on pay-what-you-can ticketing!

The New Play Festival has been made possible thanks to a generous contribution from The Heath Fund.
