About Us

Our name reflects who we are. Bold, brave, willing to step outside the status quo in order to instigate social change, promote civic dialogue and produce transformative theatrical art of the highest quality for people of all ages.

Like most groundbreaking endeavors, we don’t fit very well into a neat category of description. Sometimes, we perform in gymnasiums, other times in corporate board rooms. We have even performed in a car wash.

Since we began in 1989, our work has taken many forms in response to the needs of the times. Currently, we focus on creating commissioned work about social issues for corporations, schools from elementary through university-level, and social services agencies. In other ongoing projects, we also pair amateur actors and seasoned professionals to create work about the lives of underrepresented populations.

  • People with disabilities.

  • Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgendered Adults and Youth.

  • People with Alzheimer’s and early onset dementia.
