SEASON NINE:  May 1 - May 24, 2018 at the Instituto Cervantes Chicago

IVP brings global voices to Chicago stages through commissions, translations and production. We collaborate with consulates, cultural partners and universities throughout the Chicagoland area  and collaborate with national and international theatres to promote global playwrights at the national level.  

A global city demands global art.



For six years, we have kept our readings free of charge. Now we need your help. Please donate today to keep the new season free and open to the public. Help support IVP by making a donation today. 

Any amount helps us achieve our goals.
