The House was founded in 2001 by a group of friends with the mission of exploring the ideas of Community and Storytelling in order to create a unique theatrical experience. Following more than a dozen world premiere productions, the House experienced breakout success in early 2007 with The Sparrow, which theater critic Chris Jones called, “Among the very best original theater pieces I’ve ever seen.”

Now in its 16th Season of producing original works, House performances can be seen at the Chopin Theatre in Wicker Park.
