Chicago Directors Workshop

The Chicago Directors Workshop gives five Chicago based directors the opportunity to develop and hone their unique vision. We believe that directors are critical to the creation of the next canon of new art and seek to offer them the opportunity to experiment outside of the crucible of production. For the 2020 Chicago Directors Workshop, Prop Thtr welcomes Michelle Altman, Jeff Bouthiette, Mari DeOleo, Leah Raidt, and Derek Van Barham.
