"New York's GOLD STANDARD in summer theatre festivals"


New Ohio Theatre presents



Ice Factory is our OBIE award-winning summer festival of new work.

Every summer we invite seven of the most exciting downtown companies to present their latest projects in an environment of generosity, dialogue, and inspiration.  ICE FACTORY is a place where artists can take risks, try out new ideas, and bring their projects to a new level. We present one show a week for six weeks.

Plays introduced in Ice Factory have gone on to garner Drama Desk nominations, OBIE Awards, Audience First Awards in Edinburgh, Off-Broadway productions, commercial runs, and national and international tours.

Details on the the line-up of artists in ICE FACTORY 2021 will be on our website soon!


"The prime alternative to the season's usual tsunami of bad, uncurated and generally random theater orgies."

David Cote, TONY

"STT's Ice Factory festival has a fine record for presenting intellectually CHALLENGING and artistically DARING fare."

The New Yorker

Ice Factory is made possible in part through funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, the NYC Dept. of Cultural Affairs, and the New York State Council on the Arts
