Kill Move Paradise closed its theatrical performance run on March 12 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, due to the incredible cooperation of artist unions, Dramatists Play Service, and playwright James Ijames, we can now offer a limited number of opportunities to see the show from the comfort of your home, with a week to watch at a time convenient for you, by streaming a previously filmed performance, edited to provide close-ups and full coverage of the staging. If you are a TimeLine Subscriber, you can use your FlexPass admissions as usual for remote viewing. A limited number of remote viewing tickets are also available for the general public.

About Remote Viewing


Described by playwright James Ijames as “an expressionistic buzz saw through the contemporary myth that ‘all lives matter,’” this The New York Times Critic’s Pick play is a powerful and provocative reflection on recent events, illustrating the possibilities of collective transformation and radical acts of joy.

Torn from the world they know without warning, Isa, Daz, Grif, and Tiny discover themselves stuck in a nebulous waiting room in the afterlife. While balancing the reality of their past and the uncertainty of their future, their souls try to find peace from senseless action and hope in the life they left behind.

Inspired by the ever-growing list of slain unarmed black men and women, Kill Move Paradise is a portrait of those lost—not as statistics, but as heroes who deserve to be seen for the splendid beings they are.

A Raisin in the Sun

Aug 20, 2013 - Dec 7, 2013

This powerful drama “changed American theater forever” (The New York Times) and resonates across generations — recently serving as inspiration for the Pulitzer Prize-winning Clybourne Park. An African-American family living in a crowded apartment on Chicago’s South Side during the 1950s believes that a better life is just around the corner. But they are challenged when their plan to buy a home in the Clybourne Park neighborhood is thwarted by racial intolerance. This award-winning play celebrates faith, courage and the human spirit, even as it spotlights divides that still plague Chicago more than 50 years after its premiere.
