Easily one of the most exciting things to come out of the pandemic is Chicago’s Interrobang Theatre Project’s world premiere of The Spin (Stage and Cinema’s review here), written and directed by Spenser Davis. Continuing its Eleventh Season: Off The Record, exploring what happens when the world stops and life becomes virtual, Interrobang will stream archival footage of its one-man drama Here Lies Henry by Daniel MacIvor, newly staged by Artistic Producer Elana Elyce and featuring Scott Sawa. The revival of ITP’s very first production was shuttered last winter by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Then, ITP’s 2020-21 season will conclude next summer with Nostomania, a world premiere commission about the agony of missing home by Ismail Khalidi and Naomi Wallace, co-directed by Managing Artistic Director Georgette Verdin and Elyce. Tickets for Here Lies Henry are now on sale at Interrobang. Tickets for Nostomania will go on sale at a later date.

ITP’s 11th season includes playwrights (top) Daniel MacIvor, Ismail Khalidi, Naomi Wallace
and directors (bottom) Elana Elyce and Georgette Verdin.

February 5 – 25, 2021
Henry’s got a lot he has to tell you, he just can’t guarantee that it’s all true. In the spotlight, with only the audience as his witness, Henry grapples with his choices and failures in a scramble to make sense of his life before it’s too late. MacIvor’s gripping one-man play offers a provocative take on love, death, beauty, truth, and of course, good old-fashioned lying. 

Summer 2020
NOSTOMANIA – World Premiere
A one creature oceanic meditation on home and exile at the edge of the continental shelf, between a 12-year-old girl and a 500-year-old Greenland shark.
