CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY LIVE to Return to Greenhouse Theater Center

CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY LIVE to Return to Greenhouse Theater CenterFollowing two sell-out performances this year, CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY LIVE returns once again for one night only on Friday, August 25 at 8 pm at The Greenhouse Theater Center (Downstairs Mainstage), 2257 N. Lincoln Ave. in Chicago.

The irreverent night of improv comedy inspired by the popular and politically incorrect party game "Cards Against Humanity" will feature special guest host Matthew Hoffman, the artistic mastermind behind the "You Are Beautiful" project, which started in Chicago before becoming an international phenomenon. After audience members pitch their ideas, the best suggestions will be acted out by the Cards Against Humanity writers and a team of improvisers. The worst suggestions will be mercilessly ridiculed.

Tickets, priced at $10 are currently available at greenhousetheater.org, in person at the box office or by calling (773) 404-7336. All proceeds will benefit Designs For Dignity.18 years+ recommended.

Matthew Hoffman is a Chicago based artist and designer whose public works have been exhibited internationally. He is the founder and custodian of the "You Are Beautiful" project which has its roots in Chicago. His ideas and work have been included in Good, The New York Times Magazine and Ready Made. He has been published in books by Gestalten, Droog, and Taschen, and was featured in a segment on the Oprah network. For additional information, visit www.heyitsmatthew.com.

The Greenhouse Theater Center is a producing theater company, performance venue and theatre bookstore located at 2257 N. Lincoln Ave. in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood. Our mission is first and foremost to grow local theatre.

The Greenhouse Theater began its producing life in 2014 with the smash hit Churchill, after which came 2016's much-lauded Solo Celebration!, an 8 month, 16 event series highlighting the breadth and depth of the solo play form. This year, the Greenhouse announced a full subscription season, with a mix of multi-character and solo plays. With a focus on our community, the Greenhouse is also launching the Trellis playwriting residency, an initiative designed to cultivate the next generation of Chicago theatre creators and a two-tiered education program for college and high school students.

As a performance venue, our complex offers two newly remodeled 190-seat main stage spaces, two 60-seat studio theaters, two high-capacity lobbies, and an in-house rehearsal room. We strive to cultivate a fertile environment for local artists, from individual renters to our bevy of resident companies, and to develop and produce their work. In 2016, the Greenhouse announced a new residency program, which offers a reduced rate to local storefront companies while giving the Greenhouse a stake in the resident's success. We house Chicago's only dedicated used theatre bookstore, located on the second floor of our complex.

With new ideas always incubating, the Greenhouse is flourishing. Come grow with us!
