At the intersection of theatre, social justice, and education, you have issue box theatre.

We affectionately think of ourselves as “Actorvists”. We believe in the power of the arts – and particularly theatre, the hope of education, and the importance of social justice. We look for unique and innovative ways to bring the arts to YOU to transform, heal and create space for human dignity.

Traditional theatre does not always meet the needs of the community, in that it requires people to be transported to a specific time/place when a show will take place, people will be required to understand the etiquette of theatre spaces, and will must pay for tickets which may or may not be within budget range for the community member. Because we believe theatre is such an important, life-affirming art form, we look for ways to bring the art form TO the community.
