Threadbare Theatre Workshop illuminates epics in a simple way through the magic of resourceful storytelling; laying bare our humanity so we may thread more empathy into existence.
We are committed to making theatre from scratch across the local landscape; engaging alternative spaces to foster creative partnerships within the community. Most recently, celebrating and elevating the heritage of rural places across America.

We are currently in workshop for The Royal Tar, a summer festival centered around an original, participatory performance; engaging Deer Isle and neighboring peninsula communities in all aspects of crafting this true story that has become legend up and down the coast of Maine.

Our inaugural season celebrated bold re-imaginings of ancient myth in our own backyard with original, environmental adaptations of Moby-Dick and The Waste Land. We began with or, The Whale aboard the Lehigh Valley Barge #79 in the Red Hook harbor and closed with The Waste Land under a full Hunter's moon at Smiling Hogshead Ranch-- an abandoned railroad turned urban farm in the heart of Long Island City.
