now in the seventeenth year of our kamikaze mission to bring you the most provocative, the most defiant, the most empowering, and the most urgently necessary plays under the sun...

 come be a part of the revolution, we look forward to subverting YOU!

Dear Patrons & Comrades,

Subversive Theatre needs YOUR help!!!

keeping live theatre cranking is difficult enough in the best of times.  now, with the nation shut down and public assembly impossible, the situation for theatres like ours is dire.


we urgently need YOUR financial support to help us keep the pilot light on until the day when live theatre can resume at last.


 make your contribution TODAY and help keep Subversive Theatre alive for all the great radical shows coming soon!

we look forward to subverting again as soon as possible!

Keep checking back
