Meet the Playwright! 6/23 @ 6pm

At this ONE NIGHT ONLY EXCLUSIVE EVENT Rhea Leman joins us from Copenhagen!
Get an inside look at Hitler on the Roof by joining Playwright Rhea Leman and directors Kirstin Franklin and Amber Robinson for a pre show meet and greet with the directors and playwright. This special event includes pre-party and post show conversation with Akvavit cocktails crafted by our friends at Ward Eight Bar and Nordic appetizers provided by Chicago's finest Nordic Restaurant, Tre Kronor.  Tickets are $50 and available through the link above. 



Akvavit Theatre is haunted by Nordic visions: deep forests and ice-blue seas, the patience of the glacier, the sudden fury of the volcano, the arctic light and silence. Seeking the universal through the voices of contemporary Nordic playwrights, Akvavit Theatre is a kind of homecoming, a connecting back to the lands whose people and cultures have for generations been a part of the great prairies of North America that we call home. And like our namesake beverage, Akvavit brings a “strong spirit” to the work that we produce. Skål, Skál, Kippis!
