About Twilight Theatre Company

Founded by Sturgis Warner in 1998 as a non-profit 501(c)3, Twilight Theatre Company is committed to the development of new work by theatre artists. It was originally created in an attempt to return to the basics of an earlier era -- to simply produce more new plays in front of an audience. For several seasons this remained the mission. In 2002, Twilight shifted its operations to a less public mode to serve more artists through script development. But in 2008, Twilight rekindled its public presence with a workshop production of Ted LoRusso's Prelude to the First Day, Suite for Four Actors and Percussionist and in 2009 a successful Off-Broadway run of Brian Dykstra's A Play On Words at 59E59 Theaters. And in 2010 we produced Palestine by Najla Saïd which had a sold-out 9 week Off-Broadway run.  

Now under the artistic leadership of Margarett Perry, Twilight continues its mission to support new work through readings, workshops and productions. Twilight Theatre Company is a no-overhead operation. All money raised goes into the work itself. Twilight shifts between the public and private mode. Either way, the work continues...
