We're an award-winning theatre company established in 2015 by Artistic Director, Travis Russ. We create smart, original, and unpredictable productions based on real people who live on the margins — the outsiders, outcasts, and castaways. We explore the lives of “hidden” populations.
We develop our shows through in-depth research process, a journey that often takes several years and a large cross-disciplinary investigative team to complete.
We build in-depth relationships with the people and communities whose stories we tell.
We value moral and civic provocation, challenging our audiences to alter the way they perceive others. We break down the fourth wall. We disrupt audiences’ assumptions and expectations about undiscussable issues.
We place a high value on aesthetic innovation, experimenting with bold new theatrical languages to produce visually inventive and lyrically rich works.
Since 2016, we have produced two world premieres, transferring one of our productions for an Off-Broadway commercial run. Our shows have been named as Critic's Picks by the New York Times and Time Out New York. We have been nominated for a Drama Desk Award, seven New York Innovative Theatre Awards, and two Henry Hewes Design Awards.
