About Bartlett Theater
Bartlett Theater’s mission is to significantly broaden the perspectives of audience members by giving voice to a diverse chorus of playwrights in a provocatively entertaining and educational way. It does this by dedicating itself to exploring and presenting the creative world of one playwright each season. As the only theater in the Southeast, and one of just a handful nationwide, with such an immersive focus, Bartlett Theater produces bold works that challenge and empower its audience by finding the powerful connections between the words and stories of modern playwrights and the contemporary playwrights they inspired. With the goal of becoming a regional theater presence, Bartlett Theater intends to firmly plant itself in downtown Durham, further enriching a vibrant local culture.
