Theater in Asylum
Taking care of our community and being transparent
Theater in Asylum has been busy revising the inner workings of our company with the implementation and publishing of new ways to live our values.
On our new Community page, you can find the Community Agreements we ask those entering our space to follow, as well other resources we utilize to take care of our community.
On our Transparency page, you can find details on how Theater in Asylum’s decisions are made and money is spent.
Part of our mission is to challenge and empower our community. We hope that these resources will help us do that, while keeping everyone safe and supported along the way.
All the organizations we’ve supported so far this year in Cold Readings
Cold Readings are still happening every week and we are so grateful to the lovely folks who’ve joined us. So far this year we’ve read 18 plays, including four from Jeremy O. Harris’s Golden Collection. In addition to reading and discussing a great play, at each Cold Reading we ask our attendees to support an organization doing good work. Below, please find a list of who we’ve supported this year. We invite you to learn about these organizations and, if you’re in a position to, please consider supporting them yourself.
Tickets for The Debates 2021 are now on sale!
The Debates 2021 is an original theatrical adaptation of New York City's 2021 Democratic primary. With electoral contests for mayor, comptroller, and many city council seats, we ask, "What do we want our city to be?" We'll explore the candidates and issues in an online presentation not to be missed. With our unique blend of mimicry, abstraction, and earnest curiosity, we seek to illuminate the candidates, the issues, and ourselves.
Theater in Asylum (TIA) is a New York-based theater company founded in 2010 to challenge and empower our community. TIA joyfully pursues a rigorous research and an ensemble-driven approach to theater-making. We create performances to investigate our past, interpret our present, and imagine our future. We prize space to process, space to question—asylum—for ourselves and our community.
