Vertigo's Mission

Vertigo gives undergraduate playwrights the opportunity to have their original scripts realized into full-fledged productions. By producing student-written theatre, Vertigo hopes to be a creative and dynamic presence on campus, encouraging students to take artistic risk. Vertigo is the only student theatre organization on campus that produces entirely student-written work.

About Vertigo

We strive for our shows to live beyond Northwestern. Our One Man Lord of the Rings production recently became a YouTube sensation and received press in The Onion. Our 2009 production of Cephalopod received its New York City premiere at the New York International Fringe Festival and our 2008 production of Mild, Non-injurious Physical Contact debuted at the Manhattan Repertory Theatre in Fall 2009. Clay has been produced by the Lincoln Center Theatre, About Face Theatre, and the Lookingglass Theatre Company. Our alums work at the nation's top television, film and theatrical production companies. Many of our playwrights enter their work in professional festivals and workshops around the country. Vertigo was founded in 1994. That makes us 23 years old!
