MERCY STREET
is a not-for-profit nomadic theatre company based in Chicago, IL.


WE SEEK TO...

TRANSCEND the FAMILIAR
by bringing the spectacular and impossible to life.

SCRUTINIZE the ORTHODOX
by putting the key ideas and events of our world on display for everyone.

CULTIVATE UNITY
by presenting stories from unfamiliar places, cultures, and times;
not just our own back yard.

 

WHAT'S IN A MYTH?

Myths aren't just fairy tales from a really long time ago. Our world today is loaded with stories of heroes and icons and monsters and great battles and resilient love. Our sharing of these stories has a way of sparking our imaginations and shaping our understanding of the world. Myths are, quite simply, stories of people set against something larger than themselves. And at their core, they seek to answer questions on how to best live our lives.
