About Us

Based in Chicago’s Albany Park neighborhood, Halcyon Theatre was formed in 2006 to connect people, transform our borders and ascend toward a more just union.

We create theatre that looks like our world. Representation matters. We feel it deeply when it’s absent.  If we can’t see ourselves, it’s almost impossible to welcome another with our whole hearts. If we can’t see another as their whole self, we can’t listen to them with our whole hearts. That’s something we think our whole country is missing right now.
