The Play

Belarus Free Theatre returns to Chicago following its widely acclaimed 2011 production of Being Harold Pinter. Now, one of the world’s most provocative and inspiring companies presents a new work that laments for the city that has lost its way, pining for a beloved home that has turned ugly, and for a people who cannot express themselves within a sexually repressive society. Belarus Free Theatre was founded in 2005 in Europe’s last surviving dictatorship, and is one of the most outspoken critics of Belarus’ totaliarian regime. Despite the loss of jobs, freedom and home, the company continues to develop award-winning work with the support of artists and theater companies around the world.
