Our Mission and History

              At Invictus Theatre Company our mission is to create theatre that promotes a better understanding of language: its poetry, its rhythm, its resonance; through diverse works by diverse artists.We respect the power of heightened language: spoken, written, sung; to express the breadth of the human condition.We work to harness the power of language: to promote diversity, to engender respect, to foster collaboration; and to empower our communities to share their voices. 

             Invictus Theatre Company incorporated in January 2017 and received its 501 (c)(3) nonprofit status in February 2017.  A diverse group of Chicago actors and directors founded Invictus with the vision to empower their communities through theatrical productions of heightened language.
