Through productions of classic and all-new feminist plays, Artemisia creates career-altering opportunities for African American, Latinx, Asian, Arab and Native American (ALAANA), Caucasian & LGBTQ theatre artists. Artemisia enriches Chicago’s culture by taking creative risks, achieving artistic excellence, and engaging the audience directly in unique performances and after-show discussions that inspire compassion and social justice for women. The theatre’s namesake, Artemisia Gentileschi was a great feminist painter, forgotten by history. It’s why Artemisia Theatre was founded, to share women’s untold stories. Artemisia’s leadership is one-hundred-percent women, and the theatre is organized as a 501 c 3 nonprofit in Illinois.
