Founded in Chicago in January 2019, Valiant Theatre is a mission-driven company committed to telling stories of real people and historic events marked by courage, valor, and determination. By telling their stories, the company seeks to inspire change in Chicago and beyond.
Over the last few months, seven playwrights have worked with Valiant’s team to develop six original pieces to premiere from January 29, 2020 to February 15, 2020.
The list of playwrights include Ada Alozie (writing on Pauli Murray), Tony Bruno and Juan Castañeda (writing on Rudy Lozano), Leah Roth Barsanti (writing on Mary Tyler Moore), Jordan Marie Ford (writing on Sandra Day O’Connor), Leanna Keyes (writing on Renée Richards), and Nicholas Patricca (writing on Andrew of Capernaum).
The six new works will run in repertoire. The pieces about Andrew of Capernaum, Sandra Day O’Connor, and Renée Richards will run on Wednesday and Friday nights at 7:30pm; the pieces centered on Mary Tyler Moore, Pauli Murray, and Rudy Lozano will run on Thursdays and Saturdays nights at 7:30pm.
