A.B.L.E.’s ensembles produce between 2 and 4 projects each season. These range from original productions devised by the actors to classical pieces from the likes of Shakespeare, Dickens, and Gilbert & Sullivan. We have been fortunate to partner with a range of professional theatres from around the city for these unique one-night-only events.


A.B.L.E.’s feature films are written for and with the ensemble. Actors collaborate with professional filmmakers to create unique spins on classic cinematic genres. Projects are produced fully on location in Chicago in a true community effort.
