Writers’ Theatre was founded in 1992. As per its name, the company values text — both classic and contemporary — as the fundamental source of inspiration, creating intimate performances during which audiences come face to face with powerful stories. Writer’s Theatre is noted for its award-winning repertoire as well as for its innovative educational programming and strong ties to the community. Recent productions have included Tennessee Williams A Streetcar Named Desire, Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, William Inge’s Picnic, Russell Lees’ Nixon’s Nixon, and Jean Genet’sThe Maids.
