Founded in 1985, Working Theater exists to create theater specifically for, about and with working people, the community that makes up the majority of the overall metropolitan workforce. To that end, we make our productions relevant, accessible and affordable to all regardless of geography or socio-economic status because believe that theater should be a part of everyone’s every day culture. Join our mailing list to stay up to date on upcoming productions, community events, theater news and more! We look forward to seeing you at future productions.
