We develop new plays as well as produce established works.Here’s how it works: we produce new and established plays that deal with social justice issues in a way that’s evocative and creative (no cheesy topical drama here). Then we partner with organizations who are doing on-the-ground work on those issues. As people watch a play and become emotionally invested, we give them a way to bring about change before they even leave the theatre. Folks can sign up to volunteer, to get involved in advocacy, or to learn more about the issue at hand.

    This is a fantastic script with interesting and nuanced characters. I love Keyes' use of language and the world that she has created in this piece. Highly recommended.

    This script is incredible. Miriam is a complex and complicated woman. The story is layered and unfolds powerfully. Audience response was powerful: they couldn't stop talking about this show. Produce this one. You won't be sorry.
