What is a Boston Court Play?
We’re passionate about the heightened, the lyrical, the never-seen-before, the boundary-breaking. We’re drawn to art that excavates the depth of human existence or dances in and out of ineffable wonder. We fall for the imaginative, the impossible, the incandescent. We love the absurd. We swoon for the cerebral. We bow down to heartbreak and humor, especially when we don’t see them coming. Show us the magic of what’s real and the tangibility of what’s ethereal.
If you’re thinking about submitting a “kitchen sink” play, ask yourself: can the sink be personified? Should your unit set explode into an ocean of dreams? Will the audience come away wondering at the mysteries of humanity? If the answers are “yes,” we can’t wait to read your script.
Boston Court Pasadena houses and produces passionate, artist-driven theatre that challenges both artist and audience. Boston Court urges its artists to fearlessly and passionately pursue their unique voice and vision. Play selection encompasses a wide variety of genres (classics, musicals and world premieres, with a special emphasis on nurturing playwrights and new play development) which are inherently theatrical, textually rich, and visually arresting.
