Our Mission

Recognize Theatre creates theatre in New York City which provokes thoughtful discussion about 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, women and members of the LGBT community suffer discrimination in small ways everyday. We aim to place you in a recognizable setting; a college dorm room, a therapist’s office, and challenge you to rethink the seemingly familiar dynamics of that setting. Our goal for audiences of all backgrounds and ideologies to reconsider their assumptions about gender and sexuality in today’s world.
