Company One Theatre [in Boston] maintains our mission to build community at the intersection of art and social change during this new normal. And while we had to postpone the remainder of our Season 21, we are committed to supporting the incredible playwrights and creative teams that we have assembled around those stories. Although these productions will no longer happen this season, every artist contracted will still receive at least 50 percent of their originally planned payment this year. That is no easy task but necessary.
All of our current staff members will remain on board at their usual pay rate, and no one will be laid off or furloughed — we are all hard at work keeping our Education, Connectivity, and PlayLab programs running, as well as developing new virtual ways to keep supporting artists and activists as we collectively fight for social change.
Stages across the country may be dark, but our important work at C1 continues.
