Candid Theater Company dedicates itself to producing theater that addresses current political, social and ideological concerns. We develop new plays from concept to performance, and explore existing texts in a modern sensibility.

Our Mission

Candid Theater Company believes that theatre and all the arts should be accessible to everyone. So if we can't bring Mohammad to our mountain, we bring our mountain to Mohammad. We perform wherever our
target audience is. Over the years we have performed in bars, churches, community centers, battered women's shelters and prisons. We develop each production for the audience at hand, speaking to the events in their lives, and aim to empower the audience to create change in their worlds.
