WORKING THEATER IS A 32-YEAR OLD PROFESSIONAL OFF-BROADWAY THEATER COMPANY DEDICATED TO PRODUCING PLAYS FOR AND ABOUT WORKING PEOPLE.

For the past 2 seasons we’ve been immersed in a multi-year project, FIVE BOROUGHS/ONE CITY, in which teams of commissioned artists have engaged communities in each of the five boroughs of New York City to write, develop, and perform plays based on the issues and themes relevant to the neighborhoods being explored. We have done this through interviews, community engagement & outreach, workshops, and developmental readings with targeted feedback.

 

Over the next several years, Working Theater will continue engaging the communities of origin and developing the work, as well as touring productions back to our venue partners located in neighborhoods where working people live.

 

WE CAN’T DO IT ALONE

 

We invite you on this journey with us and ask you to participate in any way you can – whether by donating, volunteering, or attending, we cannot do this important work without your support.

 

We depend on your generous support to help us keep this work going, to send artists out into the communities, to hire teachers for our adult education programs, and to keep the lights on. Every contribution helps!
