In Infinity Burns, it is the year 1599 and the monk Giordano Bruno is about to be burned at the stake. His crime: believing that the universe is infinitely large. He has seven days to convince the inquisition that he is right, or recant his views. Set in the dungeons of the inquisition and in the vastness of Bruno’s own imagination, Infinity Burns explores what it takes to live in connection with our internal truth, and when to let it go.

Chicago’s new home for new play development.

The mission of Avalanche Theatre is to foster the development of new plays and playwrights through a collaborative coalition of theatre makers. We seek to create opportunities for diverse, innovative, and unconventional writers by creating exciting, community-building developmental performances and feedback sessions that enrich our audiences and allow for the growth of our artists. We strive to create a foundation on which the next generation of theatre writers can build.

We are a strong, passionate community of collaborators who provide a constructive and encouraging environment for the development of new plays, and who work to push the boundaries of what theatre can be.

A new way for new plays.
