Artistic Leader's Statement Writers Theatre was founded to explore productions in which the word on the page and the artists that bring the word to life hold primary importance. Central to this mission are three important core values: * - Valuing text, both classic and contemporary, as the fundamental source of inspiration; * - Creating deliberately intimate performances where audiences are face-to-face with powerful stories; and * - Honoring the time and commitment of our artists by remaining at the forefront of industry compensation. With a reputation for consistent artistic excellence, innovative educational programming and strong ties to our community, Writers Theatre has built an award-winning repertoire and serves as a vital and highly-regarded company in the Chicago theatre community.
