Dear Friends,

We can trace a straight line from WRENS, to The Walls, to Women at War, through Scientific Method and all the way to Something Clean25 years of new plays inspiring imperative conversations that spark change. Plays that lift up women and offer them a voice…a female service member returning home after a lengthy deployment, only to have her young daughter no longer recognize her; or a young woman battling to finish her PhD and stay afloat in a sexist and racist research lab, or how in the ripple effects of a sex crime, one mother grapples with the pervasiveness of guilt and tries to rebuild her world.
As we approach what may be the most critical election in U.S. history, Rivendell is committed to meeting the future head-on and with 2020 vision—as we have for the past 25 years—with ingenuity, with resolve, and with women right up front and center.

Won’t you join us in ensuring women have an ally, an advocate and an artistic home in Chicago for the next 25 years?

I am deeply grateful for your support and patronage, and excited to move forward with renewed clarity. 

I can’t wait to welcome you back to Rivendell in 2020!

With gratitude,
