minor theater makes plays in a minor key. with dark humor & goofball precision, we lure you into the tunnels where we feed off pop culture’s sticky undergut. our plays are written & directed by Julia Jarcho in collaboration with award-winning theater artists Ásta Bennie Hostetter, Jennifer Seastone, & Ben Williams.
shows include PATHETIC (Abrons Arts Center 2019; NY Times Critics’ Pick) THE TERRIFYING (Abrons 2017); NOMADS (dir. by Alice Reagan, Incubator 2014); GRIMLY HANDSOME (2013 OBIE, Best New American Play); DREAMLESS LAND (New York City Players/ Abrons, 2011); & AMERICAN TREASURE (13P, 2009). minor theater is currently in residence in HERE Arts Center’s HARP program, developing MARIE IT’S TIME, a perv-feminist woyzeck rock show. also upcoming: NONA at the Bushwick Starr.
we tell the stories that don’t fit into the stories. we are champions of weird desire. for more on what we think we are doing, read this.
