Protecting audiences and actors

We are taking the following steps to support safe attendance for artists, staff and audience during your visit.

  • Under Actors Equity safety guidelines, all audience members are required to be masked while in the performance spaces.
    • Masking in not required in the lobby or shared spaces.
    • You may bring drinks and food from our bar into the spaces and lower your mask while actively drinking/eating.
  • Free Exchanges due to illness
    • If you are feeling unwell, please do not attend :)
    • Contact our box office on the day of performance and we will reschedule your ticket at no charge.
  • Our upgraded HVAC systems increase the number of air exchanges to remove aerosolized droplets and provide updated filtering to meet CDC and city standards.
  • On behalf of the producers, staff and performers, we issue a heartfelt thank you to our audiences who make these generous accomodations for the health of all.

Thanks for your interest in submitting your work to Theater Wit. At this time, we are accepting agent submissions *or* work from any playwright based in Chicago. To submit, please send a cover letter, synopsis and 20-page excerpt of the work. I only accept electronic submissions (pdf, final draft or rtf) so I can carry them around on my iPad, which is the only way we can manage the backlog. Also, on the subject of backlog, I'm currently the only reader, so the delay time is a minimum (and horrifying) nine months, for which we apologize in advance.

If after all those caveats, you're still interested, we use Submittable so we don't lose track of manuscripts.

Submit here

Best,

Jeremy Wechsler,
Artistic Director
