How can the life-giving joys of theatre connect us all?
We are creating an American theatre that embraces storytelling as a means for producing societal change. Theatre is a uniquely communal art connecting the written word to the visual and performing arts. Theatre allows for radical inclusion and collective catharsis. When we look at characters on a stage, we see ourselves and our neighbors. We bear witness to our shared humanity and accept an invitation to live connected, art-filled lives.
