Founded in 1984, Undermain Theatre is a company of artists that performs experimental works, develops original and world premiere productions, supports a theater archive, and publishes plays. At its home theater in Dallas’s historic Deep Ellum, Undermain has presented many regional premieres, including works by Mac Wellman, Conor McPherson, Suzan Lori-Parks, Lenora Champagne, Howard Barker, Dario Fo, Sam Shepard, Samuel Beckett, Caryl Churchill, Goran Stefanovski, and Octavio Solis.
In 1995, during the siege of Sarajevo, Undermain toured the neighboring Balkan country of Macedonia, performing to capacity crowds in Roman amphitheaters and on the steps of orthodox cathedrals. Since 2000, the company has broadened its scope to produce six plays in New York, culminating in its recent adaptation of Neil Young’s Greendale.
