Created and originally performed by the Albany Park Theatre Project, a Chicago-based ensemble specializing in original devised theatre works that challenge inequality and racism by giving voice to overlooked or misrepresented stories, Home/Land is directed by Columbia College Theatre Department faculty members Catherine Slade and John Hildreth. The show is performed by an all-student ensemble supported by a design and production team composed of students, faculty, and alumni.

Home/Land was created by and for Chicago’s Albany Park Theatre Company. The ensemble-focused work brings to theatrical life a collection of real-life stories of desire, risk, resilience, heroism, love, and hope – as immigrant families strive to stay together and make a better life in the land they’ve come to call home. It was devised through a year-long process during which the APTP ensemble conducted interviews, attended rallies, and examined the ramifications of immigration laws in their own lives. It was first performed by APTP in 2012 and published in 2013.

Performances of Home/Land are:
  • Wednesday, March 13, 7:30 PM;
  • Friday, March 15, 7:30 PM;
  • Saturday, March 14, 2 and 7 PM
  • Wednesday, March 20, 7:30 PM
  • Thursday, March 21, 7:30 PM
  • Friday, March 22, 7:30 PM
  • Saturday, March 23, 2 PM (closing)

Tickets are $10 for general admission, $5 for senior citizens and students of other schools, and free for all Columbia College Chicago students.
