Get Gift. Get Lit. giftLIT.

Curated by ensemble member Maggie Gawlik, giftLIT is the literary extension and iteration of The Gift Theatre. GiftLIT offers two programs:

*The Reading Series - a forum for playwrights to hear and refine their work in front of a friendly audience at The Gift Theatre.


*The Salon - where literary artists come together to tell their stories in Jefferson Park bars & restaurants (inspired by the themes of The Gift’s current season).

We believe a play ignites a conversation with the audience, and that a play never really ends until everyone who saw it stops dreaming and thinking about it.

GiftLIT goes beyond merely supporting writers—it keeps our oral traditions alive. It keeps the conversation buzzing. It keeps the lights burning, and makes everyone’s stories important.
