Theatre for One is a mobile state-of-the-art performance space for one actor and one audience member. Conceived by Artistic Director Christine Jones and designed by LOT-EK architects, Theatre for One commissions new work created specifically for this venue’s one-to-one relationship and is presented in public spaces. Embracing serendipity, Theatre for One is presented in public spaces in which audience members are invited to enter into an intimate theatrical exchange in which actor and audience encounter each other as strangers and are equally dependent on each other.  Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, artists have been challenged to reconceive the traditional performance space. Theatre For One has answered this with a new performance venue in which your computer is the proscenium and your screen is the fourth wall we are reaching through.   In recognition of these facts below and in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, we are commissioning a collection of micro-plays by BIPOC women writers for an online residency. We believe that rebuilding a system means taking different actions from within.  You must sign up in advance. The performance is completely online.
