Accomplice Theatre is a Chicago theatre company dedicated to telling important stories in small spaces. Founded in Michigan in 2010, the company pulled up all their roots and started digging in to transplant themselves firmly into the Chicago storefront theatre scene. But enough with the horticultural metaphors, let’s talk about what it’s about :Accomplice Theatre is a Chicago theatre company committed to affordable theatre and dedicated to telling important stories in small spaces.
We focus on:
•Lowering the Price Tag- We believe theatre is for everyone, and that the average ticket price makes it hard to integrate “going to the theatre” into your life. That’s why we keep our tickets free when possible, and low-cost when not.
•Truthful Acting- Humans being humans on a stage. That’s what we’re most interested in.
•Getting Up Close and Too Personal- We like intimate spaces. We think too much space gives the audience an out.
•Stories Worth Telling- Shakespeare. Shanley. New work. Old work. If we like the story and if we want to share it with an audience, we will.
