About the Company
Theater Alliance was founded in 1993 with the distinct goal of producing work that would illuminate the experiences, philosophies and interests of Washington, D.C.'s diverse populations. That goal was furthered when Theater Alliance moved from its home at the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop to become the sole theater-in-residence at the H Street Playhouse. The company's mission has evolved into presenting new or rarely produced work geared toward attracting diverse and alternative audiences to their community in the northeast quadrant of the city. Theater Alliance has been recognized for its artistry with 21 Helen Hayes Award nominations. Theater Alliance is a constituent of Theatre Communications Group (TCG), the national organization for the American theater. Theater Alliance is also a member of the League of Washington Theaters, the Cultural Alliance of Greater Washington, Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce, and Cultural Tourism D.C. Theater Alliance is funded in part by the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities, an agency supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
