Please Welcome Colm Summers

We are overjoyed to have our new Artistic Director, Colm Summers, join Working Theater for the start of our 39th Season.

Colm comes to Working Theater with a distinguished career in theater, most recently serving as Director in Residence at The Geffen Playhouse. He’s a previous Resident Director at the Abbey Theatre (Ireland’s National Theatre) and a 2023 BRICLab Resident Artist. Known for producing thought-provoking and socially relevant new works, Colm’s vision builds on Working Theater’s commitment to exclusively creating and producing new American plays for, about, and with working people.

As we continue to navigate the evolving landscape of the arts and the vital role it plays in our society, we would like to hear from you during this time of transition. Please take our 5 minute survey to tell us what kinds of theater you want to see, Working Theater programming you love, how we can make the theater more accessible to you and how we can continue to center our community.

We are looking forward to this new era of growth, innovation, and community engagement under Colm’s leadership, and thank you for your feedback!
