About Face Theatre
Working within and beyond the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities, About Face Theatre is committed to innovation, artistic excellence and community transformation. Through our projects, we strive to challenge our artists' and audience's intellects, imaginations, self-conceptions, moral expectations, and ideas about gender and sexuality in contemporary and historical contexts.
About Face has three programming arms: its award-winning Mainstage Season, its innovative New Works Program, and our nationally recognized Education Programs, including the celebrated About Face Youth Theatre and Educational Outreach tour that collectively reach approximately 5,000 Illinois students and teachers each year.
About Face has emerged as one of Chicago's most respected theatres, and is quickly emerging as a national center for the development of gay and lesbian theatre.
OUR MISSION: About Face Theatre creates exceptional, innovative, and adventurous plays to advance the national dialogue on gender and sexual identity, and to challenge and entertain audiences in Chicago, across the country, and around the world.
