The Island

Show Information

John and Winston are political prisoners on South Africa’s infamous Robben Island, spending their days toiling at grueling, futile tasks in the prison’s quarry. At night, they secretly rehearse a two-man version of Antigone and find solace and strength in their burgeoning friendship. The Island is at once a sobering glimpse into the social, physical and psychological wounds of Apartheid; a lesson in the complex work of liberation; and a testament to the transformative power of theatre. Frequent collaborator Gabrielle Randle-Bent makes her solo directorial debut at Court, bringing her vision of resistance and resilience to the stage.

When the City of Chicago’s COVID-19 community transmission level is HIGH, Court Theatre requires properly worn face masks for attendance at performances. At all other levels, masks are optional, but strongly encouraged.

Court Theatre - 5535 S Ellis Ave, Chicago, IL 60637

Take Note

  • The CDC has moved the City of Chicago’s COVID-19 community transmission level to “high.” In light of that, Court Theatre requires properly worn face masks for attendance at all performances. This is subject to change. Please check with the theater for any updates.
