Experience world-class storytelling in The Historic Chicago Temple Building. Our intimate jewel box of a theatre houses everything from workshops to staged readings to solo performances to full productions, each story never-before-told on a Chicago stage.
At Silk Road Rising we believe that representation begins at home. If we’re to be the representation we want to see, we need to put the playwright first. Which is why the playwrights we produce hail from the Asian American and Middle Eastern American communities about which they write.
The stories we tell reflect unique Silk Road experiences and enable audiences of all backgrounds to find themselves in journeys that are complex, three-dimensional, and full of surprises. After all, a good story well told unleashes curiosity and invites discovery.
Christmas Mubarak is a first-of-its-kind musical / theatre interplay of the Quranic and New Testament stories that celebrate the miraculous birth of Jesus as told by Muslims and Christians.
This festive holiday performance features actors from our Silk Road communities and choir members from the First United Methodist Church at The Chicago Temple.
