Writers’ Theatre was founded in 1992 to explore productions in which the word on the page and the artists that bring the word to life hold primary importance. Central to this mission are three important core values: valuing text, both classic and contemporary, as the fundamental source of inspiration; creating deliberately intimate performances where audiences are face to face with powerful stories; and honoring the time and commitment of our artists by remaining at the forefront of industry compensation. With a reputation for consistent artistic excellence, innovative educational programming and strong ties to our community, Writers’ Theatre has built an award-winning repertoire and today, serves as a vital and highly-regarded company in the Chicago theatre community.
Writers’ Theatre offers between four and six productions each season. From musicals, to new work and classic plays, there’s something for everyone on stage in Glencoe. For a complete list of available performances, click here.
