Embark on a unique interactive experience with TM: an individual performance between one actor and one spectator. Through a series of questions and assignments, you will explore contemporary issues that dominate the news broadcast. TM invites you not to focus on the differences in world view, but on what unites us. Created by acclaimed Belgian theatermakers Ontroerend Goed in collaboration with theaters from across the globe, this singular experiment explores media manipulation, populist ideology, and conspiracy theories. Allegiances are tested and assumptions blown apart.

TM marks the return of the celebrated WorldStage series, bringing the world's most exciting theatrical events to Chicago Shakespeare audiences and exporting the Theater's signature productions to global destinations.
