*Check Out Our Access Initiative

radical accessibility

Our commitment to accessibility through every stage of the creative process lowers the barriers of access, allowing all audiences to see new and reimagined works that broaden perspectives and inspire dialogue.

Struggling under the economic and physical distress of Crohn’s disease, I needed to make a theater for everyone- those facing economic barriers, d/Deaf, disabled, and first-time theatergoers.
— Aaron Sawyer, Artistic Director

THE RED REVOLUTION

We believe in producing bold new work, paying our artists, offering free access to every performance, and prioritizing accessibility in every stage of the creative process.

Red Theater’s #FreeTheater and #AccessInitiative are made possible through the generosity of corporations, foundations, and donors like you!

The Midwest Premiere:

AN OAK TREE

By Tim Crouch

Directed by Jeremy Aluma

Oak-Tree-4x6-WEB.jpg

Two Actors. One has rehearsed the play. The second has never even read it.  Performed by a different person each night, the second actor will discover the play and their role at the same time as you do.

In this Chicago-premiere by Tim Crouch, An Oak Tree asks, how do we transform our world in order to survive our pain? How do we create our own reality? Anything can happen in this play that illuminates the magic of theater – a cheap trick and a genuine spell all at once.
