"Packed with young talent. In the risk-taking venture that is summer festival-going, encountering talent you want to see more of is a worthy payoff." - The New York Times, on Corkscrew 2017

MISSION

to showcase original productions by early-career theater artists who are creating work through robust and/or innovative collaborations;

to advocate for underrepresented artists and viewpoints; 

to mount a festival annually that offers audiences a unique mix of work at various stages of development, promotes interaction and dialogue among artists, and builds a community around a season of theater.
