At Hand Theatre Company's mission is to produce original work using sustainable means.
We give both emerging and established playwrights the chance to find their voices without having to be concerned with production values. Our directors, designers, and actors work collaboratively with playwrights on original texts – helping them shape the script, discussing relevant themes, negotiating the language of the play, and focusing the storytelling.
At Hand’s productions are created using environmentally conscious means, with limited materials. We have been disturbed with the impact theatre leaves on our carbon footprint and feel that waste is not a “necessary evil” for producing quality theatre. Rather than building an entire set and creating several elaborate costumes for each production, we explore simple, creative solutions that are cost effective, eco-friendly and engage the imagination of the audience.
