Theater Wit: smart art

Announcing our Play Prep Series

What is the play prep series?

Join Artistic Director Jeremy Wechsler for an extended look at a single contemporary work. We'll examine the play through the various lenses of performance, design, direction and literary criticism over three evenings of discussion. You bring the script. We bring the wine.

Our first set of three evenings will be spent imagining the most popular-selling script of 2017, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. While it is finally crossing the pond in 2018, it isn't coming to Chicago anytime soon. Although nominally based on a childrens' series, this is a dense and complex piece of theatrical writing, and deserves the full force of adult analysis. Join your fellow theatergoers to explore how to bring a text to life off of the page with the support of some of Theater Wit's professional artists.
