THE ESSENTIAL STRAIGHT AND NARROW, by The Mad Ones. Archive Residency, New Ohio Theatre 2014.
Who we are

New Ohio Theatre develops and presents bold new work from New York's independent theatre community. We believe that the best of this community, the small artist-driven companies who operate without a permanent theatrical home, are actively expanding the theatrical boundaries of the American theatre. We use our development and presenting programs to nurture, strengthen, and promote this community for Manhattan's most adventurous theater audiences.

IRT is a grassroots laboratory for independent theater and performance in New York City, providing space and support to a new generation of artists. IRTís mission is to build a community of emerging and established artists by creating a home for the development and presentation of new work.

What is the Archive Residency?

The Archive Residency offers select emerging and mid-career artists a two-year commitment of space, artistic support, and institutional continuity for the development and presentation of a new work. In the first year, resident companies are provided one month of development at IRT Theater and a workshop presentation as part of New Ohio's Ice Factory. The second year includes another month of development at IRT Theater and a world premiere presentation in our mainstage season.

Currently in residency: One-Eighth Theatre and The Drunkard's Wife. Alumni companies include CollaborationTown, The Mad Ones, Rady&Bloom, Vampire Cowboys, The Assembly, Blessed Unrest, Our Voices, Piehole, anecdota, and Built for Collapse.
