A contemporary adaptation of Oscar Wilde's classic novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, this unique production is performed promenade-style, where you follow the action and actors around the space, and features an intriguing blend of dance and dialogue. Dorian -- young, beautiful and aimless -- has just arrived in the big city, where local artists and critics have eagerly brought him into their fold. After a talented and frustrated painter named Basil Hallward crafts a gorgeous portrait of Dorian, the painting's young subject wishes to remain forever as lovely as this two-dimensional representation of him. And for many years -- through wild parties, brokenhearted lovers and occasional damage to the painting itself -- Dorian, growing steadily more wicked, does indeed remain flawlessly youthful. But what, if anything, will break this strange spell? With compelling choreography, acting and staging comes The House Theatre of Chicago's DORIAN, a modern spin on Wilde's rumination on youth and beauty. Learn More

You need to be ready for some cerebral stuff. What is reality and why am I here come to mind. It's short - 80 minutes with no intermission. Three performers - all talented. If you are looking for a nice story with a beginning, a middle and an end - forget it - more like a dream or stream of concienceness. I enjoyed it - it's been three days and it still has me thinking. My wife hated it - she is more the “tell me a nice story” type.
A world-premiere by Brett Neveu
Part midwestern gothic fairy tale, part Hitchcockian thriller, Odradek is The House’s first collaboration with celebrated playwright Brett Neveu.
Join us for this dark tale about a troubled young boy and his relationship with the monster under the stairs. With an extremely intimate set, designed for an audience of only 60 people, seating is limited.
