In an age of cynicism and sarcasm, the Keen Company courageously presents “sincere” plays. The company’s mission statement says “We believe that theater is at its most powerful when texts and productions are generous in spirit and provoke identification. Inspired by the works of early 20th century American playwrights, Keen Company demonstrates that an earnest intent can still be sophisticated. We are unafraid of emotional candor, vulnerability, and optimism.”
The company’s acclaimed productions have included Robert Anderson’s Tea and Sympathy and I Never Sang for My Father; Sutton Vane’s Outward Bound; and Theophilus North by Matthew Burnett, based on the novel by Thornton Wilder.
