Undermain Theatre

Mission: Undermain Theatre is a company of artists seeking to inspire, educate and challenge audiences and artists through its production of new and experimental theater with particular interest in poetic and language-driven work.
To continue providing new and exceptional theater to the Dallas community, Undermain could use your support for general operating and facility improvements. Some of our current needs are storage space, a company truck, addition of a bathroom, a new soundboard, an electrical upgrade and a new, quieter A/C system. Undermain Theatre's 34th season examines the world from a largely female perspective with three mainstage productions and adds a 4 week reading series of new American work in the spring. Our world premiere and season opener, so go the ghosts of mexico, part two, examines the world of Mexican cartels as portrayed by an all-female cast, by an evolving young writer. Our fall production of Annie Baker's John is a regional premiere by an established Pulitzer-prize winning playwright, which takes place in an American setting inhabited and driven by three different generations of women in an eerie atmosphere near a Civil War battleground. Winter brings us to Russia and a classic of the world stage, Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters, revolving around the hopes and dreams of the Prozorov sisters, from the pen of a theatrical visionary, a classic which hasn't seen a professional production in Dallas for 34 years. Our spring production will be filled by a series of staged readings of new plays by American writers examining the modern state of American life, how we got here, and where we're going. Three plays seen from a female perspective. Three countries: Mexico, America, and Russia, which intersect in our contemporary consciousness. A reading series which examines the modern American predicament. These four productions combine to shape Undermain Theatre's 34th season of groundbreaking performances.
