7 Stages is a professional, non-profit theatre company devoted to engaging artists and audiences by focusing on the social, political, and spiritual values of contemporary culture. 7 Stages gives primary emphasis to international work and the support and development of new plays, new playwrights, and new methods of collaboration.
Since it's inception in 1979, 7 Stages continues to honor this rich legacy of involvement on the local, national, and international level in helping to shape the future of American theatre. Each season subject matter varies from international social and political turmoil, contemporary health crises, the ethical implications of new technologies, and group and individual identity as seen through the lens of gender, race, and religion. One thing ties our season and all our work together: our mission, our understanding of which only grows and deepens further with time.
