Portland Playhouse is dedicated to producing quality, intimate, performances in which the interaction between artists and audience is paramount. We hold theatre to be a space in which people of all social, economic, racial, sexual and political backgrounds can come together to celebrate the complexity of our shared human experience.

We do this by:

  • Choosing plays that entertain and provoke discussion
  • Supporting the development of new plays
  • Engaging in educational training and community outreach
  • Continually reinventing the means by which plays are heard and spoken
