About Interrobang Theatre Project

Now in its sixth season, Interrobang Theatre Project, under the artistic leadership of founder Jeffry Stanton and James Yost, has been hailed by the Chicago Tribune as a "company to watch" and by Time Out Chicago as "one of Chicago's most promising young theatre companies." Productions have included the world premiere of Ibsen is Dead by Calamity West; the Midwest premiere of The Argument by Gregory Moss; the Jeff Award Recommended The Pitchfork Disney, Terminus and Orange Flower Water; Speaking in Tongues, Here Lies Henry, and the critically-acclaimed Hot 'N' Throbbing which Time Out Chicago's 5-star review called a "scintillating revival" and Newcity Stage exclaimed, "Interrobang Theatre Project, guns ablaze, dives headfirst into the play's challenging themes, and offers a rare production in which every element onstage is as robust and capable as every other."

What's an interrobang?

An interrobang is the combination of a question mark and an exclamation point, joining the Latin for "question" ( interro ) with a proofreading term for "exclamation" ( bang ). Through the plays we produce, Interrobang Theatre Project aims to pose worthwhile and exciting questions which challenge our understanding and assumptions of who we are and the world in which we live. With our audience, we are changing our world one play at a time.
