A “fringe” company in residence at the Boston Center for the Arts, Company One focuses on developing and producing socially relevant plays that appeal to, represent, and include Boston’s diverse urban communities. Founded in 1998, the troupe has its roots in “The Island Project,” which began on Great Diamond Island off the coast of Portland, Maine and toured to New Haven and Boston.
Among the Company One productions that have been nominated for Elliot Norton Awards and/or IRNE Awards are After the Quake, Voyeurs de Venus, The Overwhelming, The Pain and the Itch, and the musical Assassins.
