Mission Statement

By bringing new, innovative, and thought-provoking works from and to the Brooklyn community, we seek to bring theater back to its basic building blocks: text, vision, hard work, and imagination, while establishing ongoing collaborative relationships with working artists in all aspects of the theater.

We seek to create an educational environment and create an open dialogue with members of the community.
