Company One Theatre is Boston’s hub for community connection.

Connectivity is our way of bringing you in contact with our mission and with those who are also working to create a just and equitable Boston.

Dig deeper into our shows and events by engaging with our partners and taking action with us!

C1 connects with partners across the city to explore themes and content found in our productions. Partnerships can take many forms, from working with our artistic teams, to sharing resources in our lobby, to collaborating on public events like Branch Out with C1, post-show events, film screenings, and more!

Do you have a partnership idea, audience engagement event, or social action you’d like to see at C1 this season? Let’s make it happen! Email
