Giving voice to the dignity and diversity of the human experience

THE HUMAN FAMILY!  Toward a Radical Inclusion

THE HUMAN FAMILY! Toward a Radical Inclusion

After claiming a third Theatre Puget Sound Gregory Award for 2017 Theatre of the year, Sound Theatre presents a ground-breaking season unlike anything seen on Seattle stages.

In 2018, Sound Theatre is proud to mount a season of plays and events to consider the nature of THE HUMAN FAMILY. These offerings include unique productions of classic comedies, a Seattle premiere, Disability Theatre Project play-reading series of plays by disabled playwrights, art exhibitions, accessible performances and other experimental works as part of our Making Waves program.
