Company One Theatre builds community at the intersection of art and social change

Black Lives Matter. Justice Matters.

The murders of George Floyd and countless Black and brown people before him at the hands of law enforcement, and the repeated denial of justice for these crimes, only bring to light what has always been clear: that we must tirelessly fight against the deep-rooted and dangerous culture of white supremacy embedded in our country and in our cities. Boston is no different.

"They really have a sense of where to take theater in this moment ⁠— to stretch it, to make it new, to reach different audiences... They are a company the nation is paying attention to."

Jared Bowen, WGBH

"If a production is bold, exciting, and makes me feel alive, chances are it’s a Company One production.

Christopher Ehlers, DigBoston

"No theater company has been more forceful than Company One in pushing the dialogue forward."

Ed Siegel, WBUR’s The ARTery
