Guillotine Theatre (previously known as The Georgetown Theatre Company) was founded in July 1986 on the belief that theatre based on literature is an essential part of our culture. Plays are meant to be performed, not just read and Guillotine Theatre is dedicated to bringing great literature to Washington, D.C. audiences as live theatrical entertainment. In the age of small, conversational plays , Guillotine Theatre began offering exciting, larger-than-life situations and characters in works that explore the universal human condition.
Guillotine Theatre has proved an inspiration to other small theatres in the Washington, DC area; since our first production in 1986, several other theatres have begun to share our repertoire. Actors and directors who began their careers with Guillotine Theatre perform in many D.C. theatres, as well as all across the United States. Actors, playwrights and designers who have interned with Guillotine Theatre have later been accepted into prestigious theatre programs; several of our former interns have become respected theatre professionals in New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C.
