Target Margin Theater

Log-in to Favorite

Target Margin Theater was founded in 1991 by David Herskovits on the principle that works of art return us to real truths more powerfully by their divergence from a strict illustration of reality. Through classic and contemporary texts, we seek continuously to expand our conception of what can take place in a theater. Now in our 20th season, we have created aggressively re-imagined versions of classics and new creations inspired by existing sources. Difference is the generative principle of everything we do. When we program we gravitate toward plays or other literary material that is different from us; either it is from another cultural or historical context, or it is strange in language or content, or it is formally adventurous and challenges our received ideas about what a play is. This often means aggressively poetic writing like Gertrude Stein and Shakespeare; or music-theater or opera; or adaptations of non-dramatic sources. We hope that everything we do creates a different answer to the question, ‘what is a play?’
