Do you know what makes The New Group different? We aren’t afraid to say what everyone else is thinking. We do plays that move and provoke us, and help us delve more deeply into understanding ourselves and each other.

This is our first, full live season back since the pandemic, and we’re honored to share it with you. From our critically acclaimed run of Evanston Salt Costs Climbing by Will Arbery and directed by Danya Taymor, to our current world premiere production of The Seagull/Woodstock, NY by Thomas Bradshaw and directed by Scott Elliott, to our spring run of Bernarda’s Daughters by debut playwright Diane Exavier and directed by Dominique Rider — When you support The New Group, you’re not just bringing something utterly fresh to the stage; you’re helping us invest in people, and the stories that define us all.
