Chicago’s Rough House Theater Co. is on a mission to connect individuals and communities through art that celebrates the weird things that make people unique and the weirder things that bring us together. Rough House captures the heart through the eye, using puppetry, music and human performance to tell intimate stories, as strange as they are sincere. Their work has appeared in the Chicago International Puppet Theater Festival, the National Puppetry Festival, punk houses, funeral parlors, a lotion factory and the woods of Appalachia. They’re known for their Nasty Brutish and Short late night cabarets, showcases for new and experimental short-form and object-based theater for adults, and House of the Exquisite Corpse, Chicago’s only immersive puppet haunted house, held every October. roughhousetheater.com
