About Face Theatre

About Face Theatre creates exceptional, innovative, and adventurous plays to advance the national dialogue on gender and sexual identity.

Working within and beyond the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities, About Face Theatre is committed to innovation, artistic excellence and community transformation. Through our projects, we strive to challenge our artists' and audience's intellects, imaginations, self-conceptions, moral expectations, and ideas about gender and sexuality in contemporary and historical contexts.

About Face has three programming arms: its award-winning Mainstage Season, its innovative New Works Program, and our nationally recognized Education Programs, including the celebrated About Face Youth Theatre and Educational Outreach tour that collectively reach approximately 5,000 Illinois students and teachers each year.

About Face has emerged as one of Chicago's most respected theatres, and is quickly emerging as a national center for the development of gay and lesbian theatre.

About Face Youth Theatre (AFYT) productions premiere as part of the About Face Theatre main stage season and are committed to high quality production values and innovation in form and content. We believe that engaging youth in the rigorous process of creating and performing an ensemble-based play in a dynamic collaboration with a community of accomplished adult artists encourages youth development and supports youth to become agents for change in their communities.
