Answering a growing need for area theatre exploring socially-conscious drama, the Phoenix took flight in 1983, and has flourished by providing central Indiana audiences with some of the most challenging plays of the past thirty years. Housed in a turn-of-the century church, newly renovated to include two intimate stages, past productions at the Phoenix have included area premieres of such controversial titles like Angels in America, The Pillowman, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Fat Pig, and reasons to be pretty.
Featuring an impressive eight-show line up each year, this Indy answer to “Off-Broadway Theatre” offers local audiences the rare opportunity to experience a broad cross section of works currently making a splash in New York and abroad. Annual Brew-Ha-Ha and Simply Da Vine fundraisers keep off-stage drama from becoming too serious, while the company’s association with Actors Equity makes it one of the few “true” professional theatres in the state.
