Mission Statement

Strawdog Theatre Company is committed to ensemble acting and an immersive design approach, offering Chicago the premiere storefront theatre experience. We develop new work, re-imagine classic plays, explore new fusions of music and theatre, ask provocative questions and deliver the unexpected to our audience. We provide a home for our celebrated ensemble to work and play with the most sought after artists in Chicago theatre along with the best new talents in the city.

Description

Strawdog Theatre Company is a 29 year old, storefront, non-equity theatre company.

For twenty-nine years we’ve been producing theatre, and for 25 years we managed our own building as the primary renter. In twenty-nine years we’ve produced 107 productions.

We are Non-Equity. This means we are not a member of Actor’s Equity Union and cannot work with union actors. In the past five years, we’ve worked with over 600 theatre artists.

And finally, by 'Storefront’ we mean a small, non-traditional performance space. Until Summer 2016, that meant a sixty-five seat primary performance space and a secondary space that seats forty-five, and also functions as our bar and community space. We are now itinerant, and renting space at The Factory Theatre in Rogers Park. We are exploring additional storefront spaces for Season 30, with the goal of owning our own space in the next five years.
