Theatre Coup d'Etat's mission is to provoke an emotional and analytical response in our audiences by showing the depth of the human condition through both through classical and contemporary works.
In honoring and telling the story as simply and truthfully as possible. To quote Hamlet:
"The play's the thing%u2026 For anything so o'redone is from the purpose of playing, whose end, both at the first and now, was and is to hold as 'twere holding a mirror up to nature;"
Theatre is an important social tool to reflect where we are, what we are doing, and why we are doing it.
The poorest of us has the capacity to affect change and that those in power can be overthrown by the simple act of telling a story truthfully.
Theatre should not be out of reach for anyone. Therefore, it is our policy to not only offer full price tickets at a maximum of $15 - $20, but to offer industry nights and pay-what-you-can performances.
Truth is the beauty of the human condition. Our ability as a species to be endearing, volatile, courageous, dispirited, romantic, wicked, or any of the myriad of aspects that make us human beings, will be at the forefront of our productions. Theatre Coup d'Etat will tell the stories that reflect the many facets of human existence as truthfully as humanly possible.
Whether in the audience or on the stage, we are all theatre coup d'etat.
