The House Theatre of Chicago's The Nutcracker is a fantastical deconstruction of E.T.A. Hoffmann's time-honored holiday story, with lots of humor and heart -- and no ballet. This fresh theatrical interpretation centers on young Clara's journey to save Christmas. With the help of a magical nutcracker given to her by her beloved Uncle Drosselmeyer, she'll bravely fight the Rat King to save her family. This modern holiday production weaves together riveting dialogue, astonishing puppetry, original song and spellbinding imagery to tell a heartwarming story of love, loss and hope. Learn More

Woyzeck doesn’t really exist — the work was left unfinished by Georg Büchner upon his death in 1837. The original manuscript is fragmented, crossed out and chemically altered. For decades, the incomplete work has fascinated avant-garde arts and scholars who have studied and adapted it. The Woyzeck Project seeks to encourage today’s Chicago arts community to respond to what has been famously called the first working-class tragedy.
Pony is a world premiere by Sylvan Oswald, directed by About Face Artistic Director Bonnie Metzgar as part of The Woyzeck Project. The production features Starring Jessica Hudson, Matthew Sherbach, Kelli Simpkins*, Janet Ulrich Brooks*, and Kristina Valada-Viars*
