The Bard's Town Theatre is a 501c3 nonprofit theatre located on Bardstown Road in the Louisville, KY artistic borough known as "The Highlands." Still considered a fledgling theatre company, The Bard's Town Theatre has already become "a force to be reckoned with," earning a "Best Theatrical Production" award for its production of "Chasing Ophelia," and also a "Best Live Theatre" nod for its work overall.

Since opening its doors, The Bard's Town Theatre has produced world premieres of Chasing Ophelia, Misses Strata, The Kings of Christmas, Strike Zone, The Snowflake Theory, and 16 ten-minute plays. The company has also produced the OBIE-award winning A Bright New Boise, and taken part in the largest election year theatre festival in history with 44 Plays for 44 Presidents.

The Bard's Town Theatre occupies the 2nd level of The Bard's Town Restaurant and Pub, a Shakespearean-themed restaurant known for its artistically delicious food, a menu filled with Shakespearean puns, and support of local artists...from visual artists to musicians, comedians to poets.

The Bard's Town Theatre takes its name quite seriously..."Bard." Rather than being a Shakespearean theatre (as the name seems to suggest), The Bard's Town Theatre actually looks to do what Shakespeare did in his day: focus on the creation of new work. While we love Shakespeare (perhaps more than most), and we love Beckett, Stoppard, Coward, Simon, Kushner, and so on, our goal is to produce the works that haven't been performed over and over again.

    This was not the first Brian Walker play we have produced at Bard Theatre, and it won't be the last. Like just about all of Brian's work that I have read/seen/produced, HIGH TIDE is such a wonderfully honest work, and comes through Brian's unique lens. He keeps you on your toes. Highly recommend.
