Our Mission

Recognize Theatre creates theatre in New York City which challenge society’s persisting discrimination with regard to gender and sexuality. We produce theatre from all eras with a focus on new plays, female playwrights and devised theatre. Our work calls for people to recognize that while progress has been made, many women and members of the LGBT community suffer discrimination in small ways everyday. We love to explore how sexuality and gender expression are repressed in recognizable, common settings, such as a therapist’s office or a college dorm room. Our goal for audiences of all backgrounds and ideologies to reconsider their assumptions about gender and sexuality in today’s world.
