Central Square Theater is a collaboration between two non-profit professional theater companies, The Nora Theatre Company and Underground Railway Theater (URT), with a combined track record of 50 years of creating theater and educational programming for the Greater Boston community.

URT was founded in 1978 and The Nora in 1988, but neither had a permanent home until July 2008, when both companies moved into the new, state-of-the-art Central Square Theater in Cambridge. More than a theater space, CST is also an artistic and managerial partnership in which each resident company maintains its identity while working in tandem.
