Steppenwolf Theatre Company produces world-class theater based on the principles of ensemble performance that showcases the work of the finest actors, directors and playwrights. The company, formed in 1976 by a collective of actors, has a celebrated history of producing challenging theater with an intimate relationship between the audience and the actors.
Steppenwolf for Young Adults (SYA) programs build on this legacy by sharing the principles of ensemble collaboration, superior acting and the creation of new work with the wider community in which we live. Our productions and programs are specifically geared to teachers, young adults and families. We present professional productions of established plays, original adaptations of novels and new works for audiences of all ages.
The 2012/13 SYA season is part of Now Is The Time, a season-long initiative to inspire citywide conversation about making positive change in our communities to stop the trend of youth violence and intolerance, in partnership with Chicago Public Library and Facing History and Ourselves.
