THE 2021-2022 SEASON:
ONE GIANT LEAP

As the performing arts came to a sudden halt in March of 2020, it presented us with incredible uncertainties, but also a rare opportunity to take a close look at the industry. Deep conversations were had about the racism, classism, and sexism that are baked into an art form that depends on the kindness of donors, and the inertia that prevents new voices from being heard in a form that relies on story.

 

Pulley & Buttonhole Theatre Company prides ourselves on championing playwrights from underheard communities, and we committed to that more than ever in our pivot to digital, including producing previously unseen work. In the process, we recommitted to our goal of amplifying the words of women,  playwrights of color, and members of  the LGBTQ+ community, and we discovered a passion for working directly with those playwrights on new plays.

 

And so, we are excited to announce our 2021-2022 Season, ONE GIANT LEAP, a Season full of new and underproduced works by exciting creators. In addition to a Mainstage Season of 3 plays, we’re also offering a Second Stage Season of 2 original Devised works by local artists, a Theatre for Young Audiences matinee over Winter Break, and the return of the One Night Stand reading.

 

We are stepping out into the unknown--after 5 years at Homestead Hall, we are once again a vagabond company. We are producing works that call for a more diverse talent pool than we’ve ever drawn from, works that don’t come with any built-in name recognition. We’re committing ourselves to decolonizing our company and our practices. And we’re doing all of it while emerging from a global shutdown.

 

All of the work we’re presenting this year is about “what happens next?” What do we do after the storm, how do we go on, how do we change? We hope you’ll find out with us.
