Each year Sideshow Theatre Company invites three of Chicago's hottest playwrights to develop brand new, full-length, totally fresh works inside the laboratory of The Freshness Initiative. During the year-long program, Sideshow artists and staff work with each resident writer to develop plays that intersect, explore and explode Sideshow’s aesthetic and mission. The result is three bold, fresh works for the stage that push audiences' expectations of what a Sideshow play might be.
