Irish Theatre of Chicago

Overview:

The people's stories were at the very core of ancient Irish culture. It was the duty of the Seanachaí to keep these stories alive. The mission of Irish Theatre of Chicago (formerly Seanachaí Theatre Company) is to return theatre to this origin - by creating compelling productions and programs that focus the energy of artists towards the common goal of exceptional storytelling. To achieve this end, Seanachaí Theatre Company strives to provide an atmosphere where all theatre artists - actors, playwrights, directors and designers - have the support and assurance to collaborate openly. That is at the heart of all ensemble companies, and Seanachaí has proven itself a major player in Chicago’s ensemble-driven theatrical community.

About the Name Change:

"As we mark our 20th season as part of the Chicago theatre landscape, Seanachaí Theatre Company is officially changing its name to Irish Theatre of Chicago," announce ITC Co-Artistic Directors Michael Grant and Ira Amyx. "Changing the name has been under serious consideration for the last several years, and after meetings with our ensemble members and our board of directors, the new name was selected and the decision was made to make it official at the start of this our 2014-15 season. While our name is changing, our mission remains the same, and Seanachaí (gaelic for ‘storyteller’) is still at the heart of what we do. It is our hope that our new name and logo will support our future plans and make it easier for our current and future patrons to find and follow us in an increasingly diverse and complex digital age."
