theatre & film that create change

We believe that theatre and film have the capacity to create connection, encourage compassion, engage audiences and inspire social change.

 

We focus on developing powerful stories and compelling characters that encourage people to see the world from another point of view.

 

From powerful documentaries to inspiring narratives and innovative theatre, we are committed to producing work that’s brave, provocative and significant.

ELEVATOR opens at The Coast Playhouse

March 25, 2017

When seven strangers get stuck in an elevator, it’s only a matter of time before the truth comes out. Laced with musical sequences and a cinematic style, ELEVATOR is a comedic and emotional ride into the human psyche.

A CEO Woman, Business Man, Office Temp, Hot Girl, Musician, Maintenance Man and Goth Girl; When forced together, given nothing but four walls and each other, these archetypes prove to be anything but “typical.” Their preconceived notions, stereotypes and judgments are challenged at every turn, as one by one they shed their masks and reveal their truths.

ELEVATOR asks the fundamental question: Who are you behind closed doors?
