I'm currently exploring the concept of "Theatre for the public good." This involves challenging the dominant modes and motives of theatre production in the USA. Even the non-profit theatre sector is driven primarily by commercial concerns. What might it look like to create a theatre that is genuinely interested in moving public discourse rather than pumping out product? How might the processes of making theatre expand with that approach to making theatre?
