At Hand Theatre Company (Daniel Horrigan, Artistic Director; Justin Scribner, Executive Director) was founded in 2007 with a mission to produce new plays in greener ways. At Hand's theatrical productions are created using environmentally conscious means, with limited materials. They explore simple, creative solutions that are cost effective, eco-friendly and engage the imagination of the audience. Their directors, designers, and actors work collaboratively with playwrights on original texts - helping them shape the script, negotiating the language of the play, and focusing the storytelling.
Past productions include the World Premieres of Lila Cante by Mark Snyder, Dan Horrigan's one-man show My AiDS, Brian Dykstra's Silence!, Andrea Lepcio's One Nation Under, and Jono Hustis' Cake and Plays...But Without the Cake, as well as the New York Premiere of Trickster at the Gate by John Patrick Bray. At Hand also produces an annual one-act festival entitled POP! and a Staged Reading Series of new plays. Their next production, Anton Dudley's Letters to the End of the World, begins April 29 at Theatre Row Studio Theatre. For more information visit www.athandtheatre.com
