Illinois Theatre announces its 50th anniversary season

2017-18 Illinois Theatre

June 2017

Celebrating 50 years of creating excellence in performance, design, technology, management, and scholarship, Illinois Theatre will examine themes timely and timeless in a season entitled RESISTANCE • REVOLUTION • RESURGENCE. Illinois Theatre’s powerful exploration of human experience stands as a reminder that great difficulties have been overcome with inquiry, analysis, critique, and persistence—always persistence. Illinois Theatre’s 2017-18 productions will delve into issues of gender and political corruption; consider the role of art during the Russian Revolution; witness the dawning female sexual consciousness in the Victorian era; gawk at the twisted dreams festering in a collection of presidential assassins; laugh at the confusions of love, lust, and identity in a classic Shakespearean comedy; and experience the cultural difference between two families: one black, one white. This season of plays plumbs the depths (and heights) of diverse human experience, and invites moments of laughter, love, pain, and triumph.
