We empower women with positions of leadership and design.
We love the play.
We translate the playwright’s vision in every production.
We look for stories that speak to a darker and deeper truth about who we are.
We work outside the realm of genre in order to realize our stories.
We choose scripts that have a societal, political, moral, or ethical underpinning.

We want you to love the play as much as we do.
