About the Ticket Supplier: Court Theatre

Since the Court's founding in 1955 at the University of Chicago, its work has been inspired by the belief that classic theatre illuminates the stories and themes that are timely and timeless. Each one of the theatre company's provocative productions has guided its artists and audiences on an exploration into the vast human consciousness, and has created a timeline that connects the present to the past. Theatre, and classic theatre in particular, gives us insight into the past, understanding of our present, and directs us toward our future.
