The Poets’ Theatre aspires to elevate the poetic possibilities of the theatre. We invite audiences to share in the universal languages of poetry and theatre, which imbue every element, including language, lighting, movement, sound, and space, with multiple meanings, allowing us to express the otherwise inexpressible. We celebrate the work of poets past and present, and innovate new ways of theatre-making that electrify audiences and illuminate the vast and beautiful diversity of the human experience.
