A New Theatre Company in Chicago, IL
From the ashes of companies that mistreated artists, who didn't pay their performers when promised, and who eventually closed their doors; comes Phoenix Rising Productions. Our mission is to highlight the rich Midwestern culture and artistry by supporting local playwrights and underrepresented groups.

The Fires of Nero: Rise of a Dictator tells the tale of an ambitious young man, his respected tutor, his exploitive friends and a domineering mother. You will watch as one of Rome’s best known imperators comes into power and position at great cost to those around him. Is he a madman? Is he a genius? You can decide for yourself.
