theatre simple

We build from the imagination up.  Award-winning, internationally acclaimed theater simple began with the aim of stripping the theatrical experience down to its elemental parts:

  • the imagination of the actor and audience
  • the playwright's words
  • the ensemble's vision

Our goal is to impact everyday creativity by interacting within various communities (teaching, collaborating, and conversing) and by linking ideas and art.  We aim to create works that inspire and challenge artists and audiences.  Founded in Seattle, USA in 1990, theater simple has built an international reputation for producing provocative, innovative, entertaining and frequently “impossible” theatrical experiences. In over 27 years of touring and producing, theater simpletons have produced over 1100 performances of over 48 plays in four countries on three continents. In a theater, through a park, or across the internet, we work out of the box and around the world. Thinking globally, and acting locally – we make theater. Simple.
