Free Exchanges due to illness

If you are feeling unwell, please do not attend :) Contact our box office on the day of performance and we will reschedule your ticket at no charge.

HVAC Improvements

Our upgraded HVAC systems increase the number of air exchanges to remove aerosolized droplets and provide updated filtering to meet CDC and city standards.

On behalf of the producers, staff and performers, we issue a heartfelt thank you to our audiences who make these generous accomodations for the health of all. We also thank you for respecting the choices of others regarding mask use in our space.

LAST CHANCE! EXTENDED FOR 12TH WEEK

Now is the winter of discontent made glorious summer at Roseland High. Theater's most famous disabled character–Shakespeare's Richard III–comes to Theater Wit like you've never seen him before—in the vicious, no-holds barred brutal politics of high school. Richard, picked on because of his cerebral palsy (and his semi-creepy tendency to monologue), is determined to become class president.

But the road to power is never smooth, and Richard must decide: is it better to be loved or feared?

Join us for the Chicago premiere of Mike Lew's devastatingly funny, sharply written new play about perception, disability and the lengths we're willing to go to rise above our station in life.

Running Time: 1 hour 40 minutes with no intermission
