About AFT

About Face Theatre

About Face Theatre creates exceptional, innovative, and adventurous plays to advance the national dialogue on gender and sexual identity, and to challenge and entertain audiences in Chicago, across the country, and around the world.

Our vision is to be Chicago’s celebrated center for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and ally (LGBTQA) arts and amplify the nation’s leading voices to spark social change. Enabled by broad community support, the organization thrives as an inclusive home where diverse artists, youth, audiences and community partners come together for artistic exchange and cultural dialogue.
