STRANGERLAND is a social parable, it is the story of the discovery of what it means to be human, to discover emotions, to interact, to feel something for the first time, to live and die, and how we must carry on. The Strangers occupy The Machine where they live and work in coexistence, totally disconnected from the other people around them and unaware of themselves. When a mysterious body washes up on the shore they discover themselves and are forced to confront one another for the first time.

Strangerland has been in the works for over two years as Sideshow's first ensemble devised piece. With over 30 satellite artists contributing material from across the globe, Strangerland is a unique piece of storytelling, both in its process and production.


Sideshow Theatre (Chicago, IL)

“Familiar Stories. Unorthodox Methods. Perpetually Curious”

Sideshow Theatre Company, an Illinois non-profit, was founded in 2007 in Chicago, Illinois. Our first production, Dante Dies!! (and then things get weird) was originally mentioned jokingly as the strangest imaginable subject matter for a one-person show. But when the laughter died down, an intense curiosity remained, as well as one defining question: “What if?” From that question a show, a company, and a mission were born.

It is the mission of Sideshow Theatre Company to mine the collective unconscious of the world we live in with limitless curiosity, drawing inspiration from the familiar stories, memories and images we all share to spark new conversation and bring our audience together as adventurers in a communal experience of exploration.
