Diana Slickman has worked with a number of Chicago theatre companies as a performer, writer, producer, director, and administrator, sometimes all at the same time. She is an ensemble member of Theater Oobleck and has appeared in seven of their productions, most recently in Mickle Maher’s There Is a Happiness That Morning Is. Since 2006, she’s been a part of BoyGirlBoyGirl, Chicago’s favorite solo performance ensemble, writing and performing original monologues inspired by found texts. Diana has performed her solo work at Essay Fiesta, Write Club, The Encyclopedia Show, Paper Machete, The Partly Dave Show, The Dollar Store Show, The Magpies, Curious Theater Branch, and the Drinking & Writing Beerfly Alley Fight, among others. A former ensemble member with The Neo-Futurists, she performed in their signature show Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind for eight years and contributed to many of their “prime time” productions. She also helps to run Hope and Nonthings, a very small publishing company that brings to print the works of Chicago playwrights and punk rock authors.
