(The following was lifted from a Facebook Invite for Workhaus’ Chimera)

Marion Mcclinton on Workhaus Collective and American Theater:

 

“I believe the future importance of the American theater is theater companies like the Workhaus Collective. A theater run by and for playwrights is vital for the future to be born in the present. Too many of the LORT/TCG theaters are becoming corporations, training grounds for future business executives but a burial ground for the passions and dreams of artists. Too much political compromise and not enough artistic verve. The theater is always and must always evolve, in infinite revolution. A marriage between Charles Darwin and Che Guevera. Workhaus Collective is among the first shots across the bough.”

—-Marion Mcclinton, 2010
