This year, ACT’s Mainstage programming will broaden an ongoing dialogue about the world we live in, and extend an even wider invitation to join in that conversation. For 2018 we have made it our mission to rise to the occasion of our increasingly polarized society by producing works that explore the space between extreme ideologies. We strive to offer thrilling plays that reach for common ground, inspiring us to challenge our own assumptions and begin more profound conversations. As Artistic Director I’ve come to appreciate that the ACT audience is ignited by a theatre experience that challenges opinions, and gives us space to contemplate our complicated world.
This is theatre for a bold audience.
–John Langs, Artistic Director
