What We're All About

Bringing Our Community Together Around Entertainment

Let's Talk

Whether it's through an artist discussion and mingling at our monthly storytelling series or taking in one of our productions, we foster dialogue around entertainment.

Celebrating Storytellers

Playwrights, filmmakers, actors, monologists, musicians, comedians, and artists of every variety explore and showcase their talents - they're what it's all about!

Partnerships

In addition to our artist and theatre partners, we raise awareness and funds for the local non-profit organizations who keep our communities thriving.

June 1, 2020: Our Thoughts

Enough is enough is enough. Black Lives Matter - it is that simple. We could share a thousand stories and drawings and photos and videos. Please, listen to our black and brown friends and neighbors - please empathize. We offer our ears, our support and solidarity.

Undiscovered Works is dedicated to supporting artists as they develop plays, music, monologues, comedy, and film. Our ensemble-based Off and Off-Off Broadway productions bring to light the social issues of our times, all the while entertaining and inspiring dialogue.

Our monthly storytelling series presents work in all stages of development, bringing together voices from across our community.
