WT Statement Regarding COVID-19
Performances at Writers Theatre Suspended Immediately Until Further Notice:
On Thursday, March 12, Governor J.B. Pritzker and Mayor Lori Lightfoot strongly recommended that all public and private gatherings of more than 250 be suspended. Therefore, in accordance with the state and local officials, and out of concern for the health and safety of our patrons, artists and staff, Writers Theatre is cancelling the final four performances of Stick Fly and suspending performances of The Last Match until further notice.
Thank you to all our friends and patrons who have purchased tickets to our productions. Our Box Office team will work with you directly to make appropriate accommodations, including options for exchanges or donating your ticket for a tax deduction for the total value. As you can imagine, the WT Box Office will be handling a significant number of inquiries, so we appreciate your patience; do not feel like you must contact the Box Office immediately. Our Box Office will be in touch to follow up with all patrons in the weeks ahead.
It is our hope to resume performances of The Last Match when appropriate and move forward with the run of Manual Cinema’s Mementos Mori, scheduled to begin performances on May 6. However, we will continue to monitor any developments with the COVID-19 pandemic and should any changes mandate an alteration in our production dates, we will let you know.
Thank you for looking after yourselves and each other. We look forward to welcoming you back to Writers Theatre very soon.
