Bring Your Own Theatre (BYOT) is a platform for anyone and everyone to come and create live theatre with a supportive and collaborative group, regardless of experience level. Our company found its roots in the living rooms of its members and has enjoyed performing at various traditional and non-traditional performance venues across Chicago over the past 8 years! Our shows bring together five writers and directors, and a group of actors to create, rehearse and perform five original new plays - all in 24 hours!
