What is The Factory?
Right after saving a multitude of puppies and nuns from a burning bus en route to an orphanage, The Factory Theater decided that creating shows would be even more rewarding than heroism.
That would be an awesome story. Truth is, most Chicagoans created theater companies because they didn’t want to wait for the right kind of shows to appear – they wanted to make them. The Factory was no exception to this rule, but they took it a step or ten further. The Factory was going to create their shows from scratch, doing exactly the kind of theater they wanted to do.
Almost 25 seasons later, the formula seems to be working. From writing workshops to the closing night bash, the process ensures The Factory shows are a unique experience that fits their exacting standards: Original, Bold, and Full-Tilt. The shameless ensemble are ambassadors of a good time, making certain that Chicago remains heartily entertained.
Yeah, this is a better story than that burning bus. Trust.
