Arcturus Theater Company
Theater can enable us to see the ways we interact from new perspectives and prompt discussion on topics that do not come up naturally in everyday conversation. We, a small group of DC area theater enthusiasts, have formed Arcturus Theater Company to present plays to evoke ideas that will provoke such discussion, and which will engender sensations of joy, discovery, and recognition. We intend to present views of life that will inspire shock, delight, at times even horror -- specifically the horror that comes with the realization that there are deplorable conditions in this world of which one had not been aware.
We aim to bring quality stage and radio performance works to the DC region at a low a price. These include new pieces that have entered the realm of the classics, and obscure, lesser-known works of famous playwrights.
Artists may be able to give the world some beauty but to give it reason is impossible. Yet artists can continue to ask questions and seek answers in the hope that reason may at least be discerned. In our small way, we hope to take part in this ongoing dialogue, and in so doing bring to ourselves and our audience ideas and feelings we may not otherwise experience.
