The Williams Project
The Williams Project is a national professional theatre ensemble, building ambitiously re-imagined productions of American plays. The company’s mission is to make theatrical excellence accessible to diverse and engaged audiences, while paying artists a living wage.
We create theatre that is:
Entertaining enough to make everyone feel welcome and part of a community;
Ambitious enough to risk humiliating failure;
Powerful enough to move people to love each other more, even in the face of the temporary nature of theatre and life.
We make theatre in a manner consistent with our belief that professional artists are vital to our culture and deserve to be compensated in a way that recognizes their value. Great theatre artists are working class heroes, who sacrifice greatly to make meaningful work. We strive to pay artists living wages in order to support that work.
