Theater Unspeakable

Based in Chicago, Theater Unspeakable (TU) is a touring theater company that creates original shows based on well-known topics. Every year, the company tours its shows to hundreds and thousands of young people and families around the country. Tours have included Lincoln Center Education (NY), John F. Kennedy Center (DC), Palo Alto Children's Theatre (CA), and Chicago Children's Theatre (IL).

The signature of the company's work is "Big Stories in Small Spaces." Many of its shows are performed on a three-foot by seven-foot platform raised two feet off the ground. On this tiny stage, seven actors create all the characters, scenery, and props with only their bodies and voices. Each actor plays about a dozen different characters in our fifty-minute shows -- and objects! -- by simply changing their body language and how they speak. The company's style strives to create live theater at its most imaginative and engaging.
