“You think that a wall as solid as the earth separates civilization from barbarism.
I tell you the division is a thread, a sheet of glass. A touch here, a push there, and you bring back the reign of Saturn.”
  ~ John Buchan
 
the DIVISION theater company's mission is to engage the community in questions of ethics, morality, and the demands of civilization. By exploring these issues in a theatrical setting, we seek to stimulate dialogue, self reflection,   accountability,  and a greater apprehension of each individual's role in shaping the culture and the world we live in.

what the critics are saying about the DIVISION...

mission to evoke questions of ethics
and morality in today’s civilization"

"An impressive and handsome
effort which bodes well for
the future of this new troupe"

"Arresting...Voluptuous...
the Division announces its arrival
with a swash, a buckle, and
a splash of gothic nihilism "

How often do we see a play rendered
smarter than its creator intended?""
~ Windy City Times ~

"In its debut effort, the Division easily

matches the script in vigor and

panache. The pace is brisk, the

sword fights are exciting, and the
performances are lively and engaging"
