The Silk Road Theatre Hosts Innovative and Multicultural Productions

Located in


The Loop

Ticket Pricing


Features: Chicago is known the world over as home to theatre that’s innovative, exciting, and ground-breaking. Yet for the nearly 1.5 million Chicagoland residents with Asian, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean backgrounds, the city’s stages seldom reflect the stories and experiences that shape their lives, let alone feature actors with familiar faces. This need is now being met by the Silk Road Theatre Chicago. Distinguished as the only theatre of its kind in the United States, this fast emerging company is expanding the discourse on diversity and representation in the American theatre.
Silk Road Theatre Project showcases playwrights of Asian, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean backgrounds, whose works address themes relevant to the peoples of the Silk Road and their Diaspora communities. Through the creation and presentation of outstanding theatre, they aim to promote discourse and dialogue among multi-cultural audiences in Chicago.
Silk Road Theatre Chicago – an authentic Chicago theatre experience only a few feet from your seat. Intimate, edgy, entertaining plays in the heart of the Loop. “One of Chicago’s hidden treasures.” –Chicago Sun Times.

Why We Go: The Silk Road Theater Chicago is a unique venue to see cutting edge, multicultural theatre.

  • Original: Where else can you find a theatre that only showcases work by Asian, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean playwrights?
  • Intimate Setting: The Silk Road Theatre Chicago is small and very intimate, which allows you to feel extra involved and apart of the plays. 
  • Great Location: Located in the bustling Chicago Loop, a multitude of restaurants and nightlife options are but a few steps away.

Inside Knowledge: As the Silk Road Theatre Chicago has such a small venue, tickets sell out fast, so make sure you book yours well in advance.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Go in With an Open Mind: The Chicago Silk Road Theater Project often hosts plays that deal with race and other controversial issues, so make sure you go in with an open mind.
  • Do Explore the Area: Near many exclusive restaurants and bars, take advantage of the Silk Road Theatre Project premier location. 
  • Don't Bring the Kids: The Silk Road Theater Chicago tends to showcase plays with fairly adult content, so you will probably want to leave the kids at home.
  • Don't Take Pictures: The Silk Road Theatre would prefer if you wouldn't take photographs during performances.
