ABOUT HORIZON THEATRE COMPANY
Now in our 28th season, Horizon Theatre Company has been bringing exciting area and world premieres of contemporary plays to Atlanta's audiences under the leadership of Co-Artistic Directors and Founders Lisa and Jeff Adler since 1983. A professional theatre with a reputation for excellent ensemble acting, Horizon produces outstanding new plays by today's playwrights that reflect and challenge the lives of the diverse people living in the urban Southeast. Horizon has introduced Atlanta audiences to the works of such well-known contemporary playwrights as Rebecca Gilman, Wendy Wasserstein, David Hare, Terrence McNally, and David Ives, as well as plays by talented emerging writers. In addition to producing its five-play mainstage season, Horizon also develops new plays through workshops, readings, and through our annual New South Play Festival, dedicated to plays from, for, and/or about the South. Horizon develops new audiences and artists through the Horizon Playwriting Education programs, and Senior Citizen Ensemble programs. Horizon's home is an intimate 172-seat theatre located in Atlanta's eclectic Little Five Points business and arts district.
Horizon’s mission is to be a dynamic leader in the production and development of professional contemporary theatre in the Southeast. We passionately connect our audiences to accessible and relevant plays that are new to our region. We also cultivate diverse new artists and audiences for contemporary theatre through innovative artistic development, education and outreach programs.
