Developed by New Light Theater Project



A modern adaptation of Siddhartha that is set in a modern major city. Sidd leaves the cozy comfort of the ‘burbs in order to find the true meaning of happiness in the Big City.  The only thing stopping him: The people.



SIDD was a three-stop tour first playing in Chicago at The Gift Theatre, with workshops at Concordia University and York Community High School.  SIDD was the first out-of-town show to sell out in the history of the Chicago Fringe.

The Ultimate Goal of SIDD is to create a foundation of a script so that other artists and companies can continue to expand upon it.  Sidd encounters many different people, in many different places, at many different moments in order to find happiness and understand pain… Tell us a story about your encounter with Sidd so we can continue to add to the fable.  Submit a Response HERE
