adventure stage chicago presents theatER unspeakable


Devised by TheatER Unspeakable
Directed by Marc Frost

November 4 - 29

A critical history lesson in 50 minutes!

Seven actors—suspended on a platform two feet
off the ground — share 21 square feet of space
to recreate the entire heroic American fight
for independence from Lexington to Yorktown.
Using only the actors’ bodies, voices and
(pantomimed) cannons, the show evokes an epic
time period in American history. Combining
tongue-in-cheek humor with a dash of derring-do,
The American Revolution displays Theater Unspeakable's
rowdy brand of bare-boned and imaginative physical theater
in its first ever extended run in Chicago.


ADVENTURE STAGE CHICAGO creates and tells heroic stories about young people. We do this to engage our community and inspire all of us to be heroes in our own lives.

We believe the world needs more everyday heroes, and we invite you to be a hero with us. Welcome to Adventure Stage!
