WE CREATE SMART, ORIGINAL, AND UNPREDICTABLE THEATRE
Established in 2014 by Artistic Director, Travis Russ, we are an award-winning theatre company based in New York City. Utilizing field interviews and archival research, we share real stories about diverse human experiences, particularly those of people living on the margins — the outsiders and outcasts. We produce investigative works based on real-life stories, often engaging with the people whose stories we tell. We experiment with new theatrical languages and forms in pursuit of visually inventive and lyrically rich works.
Our inaugural production, GOREY: THE SECRET LIVES OF EDWARD GOREY, quickly transferred Off-Broadway, was named a Critics' Pick by the New York Times and Time Out New York (★★★★), and was nominated for a 2017 Drama Desk Award and seven 2016 New York Innovative Theatre Awards.
We are the recipients of a 2017 Drama League Artist Residency where we are developing our next show, AMERICA IS HARD TO SEE. We have completed artistic residencies at the Sheen Center, the Tank, IRT Theater, One Company, Fordham University, and Stony Brook University.
