Bang is a play about "political emotions. About the irrational desire for explosions and sensations in the political sphere," a biting satire of the "longing for macho men, leaders who provide simple solutions for complex problems." (Marius von Mayenburg)

The series is presented in collaboration with consulates and other cultural institutions throughout Chicago and this year’s engagement features plays from Spain, Serbia, Poland, Syria, Finland, French Canada, India and Germany. A reception follows each evening’s reading. The International Voices Project is the largest event of its kind in the country and introduces Chicago audiences to some of the most exciting voices on the international theater scene. Performances are free to the public and reservations are requested. For the complete program, more information about IVP, or to reserve your seat, visit
