THINKING CAP THEATRE needs your support! Celebrate 10 Years of Thinking Cap Theatre and Make an Impact by Donating $120 The equivalent of just $10/month for the 2020 calendar year! This year marks ten years of Thinking Cap Theatre producing bold, breath-taking, and thought-provoking theatre, and TCT needs the support of its community, near and far, now more than ever. TCT has endured, in part, because it has a strong, distinct, and much-needed mission: TCT produces plays that depart from convention, plays that most theatre companies in our region and beyond would not take the risk to stage, plays that keep the art form fresh and alive through their experiments with dramatic form and their investigation of complex, often progressive, feminist, and LGBTQ-focused issues and themes. Cleansed by Sarah Kane; Waafrika by Nick Mwaluko; The Realistic Joneses by Will Eno; Grounded by George Brandt; Church and Straight White Men by Young Jean Lee; Collective Rage by Jen Silverman; Crooked by Catherine Trieschmann; Dance Nation by Clare Barron: these plays and others comprise Thinking Cap Theatre's body of work and unequivocally represent our mission. TCT also produces well-known and rarely staged classical plays, from The Importance of Being Earnest and King Lear, to The Rover and The Emperor of the Moon, in a style and manner that strives to bridge the gap between tradition, artistic experimentation, and audience accessibility. Finally and fundamentally, TCT produces plays and hire casts and creative teams that reflect the diversity of the world within which we live. We have been preaching AND practicing "Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion" since our inception in 2010. We are thrilled to see these basic, humane, and long-overdue practices becoming more manifest throughout American theatre. All of the above and more: TCT has been doing it for a decade. Unconventional. Unexpected. Unafraid. This is Thinking Cap Theatre: Theatre for RIGHT NOW.
