About Ripped: The Living Newspaper Festival

Chicago’s Original – Est. 2009

Since 2009, we’ve produced seventeen editions utilizing over 500 artists! Based on the 1930s WPA era program that brought Orson Welles, Arthur Miller, and Clifford Odets into public attention, we present short plays ripped from today’s headlines.
