About this show

The 15th annual New Stages festival of new plays includes three developmental productions in repertory and three staged readings. Five productions in the 2018/2019 season emerged from New Stages, including We're Only Alive for A Short Amount of Time, How to Catch Creation, Lady in Denmark, Twilight Bowl, and Lottery Day. Founded in 2004, the New Stages festival is a celebration of innovative new plays designed to give playwrights an opportunity to take risks and experiment. The festival offers Chicago theatergoers a first look at dozens of plays, many of which have gone on to become successful full productions — including Noah Haidle's Smokefall and Lynn Nottage's Pulitzer Prize-winning Ruined.
