"WordTheatre is a great, freewheeling, passionately engaged interpreter of contemporary short fiction. Whereas other such enterprises are content to cherry pick a few classics in a predictable setting, WordTheatre finds work that can bring about great performances in its constituency of first-rate performers, always in search of the ineffable and the uncanny that are at the heart of the very best in world literature. Their ambition is for the new, the challenging, and the emotionally rich. In my own case, I have never heard such wonderful and illuminated performances of my own work." - Rick Moody, author of The Ice Storm
In addition to our Board of Directors, WordTheatre has a dedicated Honorary Board and Artistic Council made up of actors and writers who firmly believe in WordTheatre's mission. They remain ever willing to give their time, words and resources over and over again in order to help WordTheatre be the best that it can be.
