Who We Are

Our mission is to keep theater relevant. New Wave produces sharp contemporary theater, and champions new writers. In 2016, we produced two full-length main stage productions and started our “New Works Reading Series”, where we produce staged readings of developmental playwrights’ new works, and that was just our FIRST SEASON! We love bringing fun, thought-provoking theater to a contemporary audience

Constellations

By Nick Payne

This spellbinding, romantic journey begins with a simple encounter between a man and a woman. But what happens next defies the boundaries of the world we think we know—delving into the infinite possibilities of their relationship and raising questions about the difference between choice and destiny.

The New Sincerity

By Alena Smith

In the midst of an Occupy-style movement, Rose Spencer has just achieved the ultimate young-intellectual's dream: becoming a staff writer for this prestigious New York literary/criticism journal. She sees a way to participate in what may be the defining activist moment for her generation. "The New Sincerity" is a poignant comedy about fighting for the greater good...whilst tweeting about it.

BULL is an allegorical tale of three office employees, preparing for a meeting where they have to fight to keep their jobs. Who deserves to get the axe?

What We're Up Against

By Theresa Rebeck

Set in a highly competitive architecture firm, What We’re Up Against takes an explosive look at the complicated battle of the sexes raging across Cubicle Land. A funny yet insightful view of what it means to be female in a male-dominated career, and one woman’s response when she tires of slamming into the glass ceiling.

In 2016, we produced two full-length main stage productions and started our “New Works Reading Series”, where we produce staged readings of developmental playwrights’ new works, and that was just our FIRST SEASON! We love bringing fun, thought-provoking theater to a contemporary audience and we need your help to keep our momentum going.
