South Side Stage is a professional theatre on the South Side of Chicago. We are committed to building a fundamentally inclusive theatre and artistic community, where no voice is silenced at any stage of the artistic process.
Calling all artists. Playwrights. Actors. Directors. Musicians. Lovers of the spoken word. Lovers of the theatre. Newcomers to the theater. Those who’ve never stepped foot in a theatre. Lovers of the visual arts. Writers who write every day. Writers who never actually write (but will!...tomorrow.) People with hands and feet. People on something street. Girls with crochet braids. Boys with high top fades. As much as this is ours – this right here, is your stage. Please consider donating to our Kickstarter campaign, which aims to fund productions that keeps theatre alive and equitable, as well as supporting artists, during this uncertain time.
Our writers, poets, musicians, truth-speakers, motivators, lovers, artists, who will come together to perform their work collectively. This is our artistic community.
RAISIN PUFFS premiered at South Side Stage on March 6, 2021. It tells the story of three men’s perspectives based on an assault, and upon a former classmate. Time: The present. Place: Chicago's South Side.
