We would like to say hello to all those out in the land of blogging!

We are Speaking Ring Theatre Company, based in Chicago, and we are currently in our 7th season!

Our Mission: Speaking Ring Theatre gives voice to new ideas. Through new and re-envisioned works, this ensemble of artists tells stories that explore how far you are willing to go to fight for your beliefs.

We are very excited about our next production, Jim Leonard Jr.'s The Diviners, to be directed by SRT ensemble member Emily Korff. The Diviners will open in early spring 2008 and will be performed at National Pastime Theatre. We'll have more blogs in the coming months about this production!

What else is going on? Well, a lot!

  • Artistic Director Mercedes Rohlfs and company member Sean Leonard are both currently appearing in National Pastime Theater's The Magician

  • Company member Hannah Phelps is appearing in Point of Contention's Vanities

  • Company member Michael Brownlee is currently in Theater Oobleck's Spukt

  • Company member Erin Orr is appearing in Right Brain Project's Chalk
