About The Sparrow

Written and developed by The House Theatre of Chicago – an innovative, award-winning company founded by SMU alumni in 2001 – The Sparrow tells the story of a teen with unusual hidden powers that could either save or destroy her hometown. The Chicago Tribune called the play “a thrilling, riveting celebration of the power of the imagination that adults and teens can enjoy, and understand, together.” The House Theatre’s mission is “to unite Chicago in the spirit of community through amazing feats of storytelling”; its artistic director, Nathan Allen, recently received the Emerging Leader Award from SMU.
