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

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*
