mission & Vision
Askew Theatre Company supports playwrights who are developing new works and presenting theatre that explores our humanity in queer, quirky, dark or in an otherwise askew manner. We are also committed to presenting theatre by queer and people of color whose works explore the world in brave and challenging ways.
Our vision is to produce meaningful theatre that aims to entertain, enlighten and inspire critical thinking that moves audiences to take action towards making a positive difference in our society.
Statement on Equity, Diversity & Inclusion
We value the diversity of cultures within our communities. Askew Theatre Company recognizes the individual differences along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, age, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, physical disabilities, nationality, language, religious beliefs, and socioeconomic background. We are committed to partnering with organizations, businesses, and individuals that share our dedication to creating and maintaining an inclusive environment with equitable treatment for all. Equity, diversity, and inclusion is essential to the creation of high quality art.
An equitable theatre that reflects the plurality and diversity of American culture is a relevant theatre.
