Chicago Dramatists Open House

Tap into your creative side.

You have stories to tell. Characters that need to be created. Songs that need to be sung. We invite you to bring your creativity to life at Chicago Dramatists. Meet us on Saturday, May 11th at our brand new space at the Literacenter (641 West Lake Street), where we’ll hold our second Open House. Chicago Dramatists provides an artistic home for people from all walks of life. It’s a place where creativity is supported and realized. A place to craft your play, story, script or musical. You will find the class that speaks to your individual creative process; meet the peers and writers you’ll work alongside; discover the mentor who will put the fire in your belly and help with that final push of your final draft.

At the Literacenter:
641 West Lake Street
Saturday, May 11, 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.

All who attend will take part in a series of playwriting workshops led by master teachers, and everyone will walk away with freshly minted pages in hand: the vibrant spark of a brand-new play. The cost is free, and the door is open. Join us for cheese, wine, and a chance to congregate in this deeply rooted and vibrant community and stand at the forefront of great American Theater.
