Mission:

Great theater strives to tell stories that illuminate, challenge and alter our perceptions, that show us who we are and transform us in the process. Working Theater believes this transformative experience should not be a privilege or a luxury, but a staple. We recognize that we live in a society that is often polarized by economic, cultural and class differences and that these differences can be divisive. However, what makes us different is sometimes the most interesting thing about us.

We want working people, Americans working in the industrial and service economies, who may be unable to afford commercial theater prices or feel that it does not resonate with their lives and experience, to make play-going a regular part of their cultural lives.

Toward that goal, we offer low ticket prices and tell stories that reflect a diverse population of the working majority, that acknowledge their complexity and oft-denied power in an increasingly complex world, which we hope will unite us in our common humanity.
