The mission of square product theatre is to engage in radical acts of inquiry that leave an audience with just as many questions as answers.
WHAT WE DO:
For more than a decade, we've created and collaborated on original, honest and innovative works of theatre and performance with local and national artists. We create and produce new works, in addition to presenting innovative productions of existing dramatic texts. We particularly focus on texts that highlight the voices and stories of historically underrepresented populations. We dedicate ourselves fully to the beauty of simplicity and the importance of theatre and performance as a vehicle for communication, relation and change.
