About Ally Theatre Company
Ally Theatre Company produces theatre designed to engage audiences through acknowledging and confronting systemic oppression in America.
We aim to join the vital conversations -- sparked by generations of thinkers, writers, performers, and activists who paved the way before us -- conversations that continue each and every day -- by:
-Placing underrepresented populations at the front and center of our narratives and our organization;
-Forming alliances with individuals and organizations who share a similar mission;
-Producing new theatrical works making their world, national, or local premieres; and
-Tackling existing theatrical works that forward the conversation.
In doing so, we hope to play a small part in creating the space and opportunity needed to form new traditions and conversations, while steadily inching toward the eradication of systemic violence, prejudice, and racism in our society.
