Purple Circuit Theater Directory - 2015
Gay/Lesbian/Feminist-Supportive Theater Companies
The Purple Circuit lists gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or “queer” theater and performance events, as well as “Kindred Spirit” organizations that produce such work. Our directory indicates which venues accept scripts, sponsor visiting performers, and which have specific criteria for submissions. Most venues have volunteer, or small reading staff, so replies may take a long time. In many cases, an exploratory letter with synopsis may be preferred rather than sending full scripts.

Our gratitude goes to Barbara Voller for her work contacting all the theaters for their updates.

Past Theater Directories are located in our Archive.

    Identity: GLBT
        Founded in 2010, we endeavor to change lives by improving the quality of LGBT theater and film
        for this generation and those to come. Utilizing stories with gay, lesbian, bisexual, and
        transgender characters or themes, we create powerful presentations. We accomplish this mission through
        a season of Jeff-eligible productions, writing contests that culminate with new work festivals at
        Center on Halsted, film screenings, and special events like TransFest and LezFest designed to bring
        attention to underserved artists and audiences.
        In 2015, Huffington Post called PFP Films “A powerful and empowering entity.”
        In our first four Jeff-eligible seasons, we earned 14 Jeff nominations and 4 awards, including
        “Best Musical” and “Best New Work.” Last year, all of our productions were Jeff recommended. This year,
        two plays have already been Jeff recommended. Our productions have played in Los Angeles, Dublin, and
        Philadelphia. Presently, one of our productions is being licensing across the country.

    Contact: Tim Cusack, artistic director
    Identity: GLBT
        Theatre Askew was founded to explore a radical new approach to the
        representation of “queerness” on stage; one that embraces a spectrum
        of relationships and identities. We propose a definition of queerness
        that serves as a metaphor for all those who stand outside of,
        challenge, or reject mainstream consumer-based models of gender or
        sexuality. This is the community for whom we make our work, gay and
        straight. Since 2004, our productions have attempted to straddle
        categories often set in opposition to each other: accessible and
        experimental; gay and straight; pleasing and provoking; popular and
        alternative. We search for the connections between queer experience
        and issues of the broader culture. We draw from our rich theatrical
        and literary heritage to inspire exciting new work. We are committed
        to creating theatrical events that confront political concerns and
        that have social impact and moral consequence.
        No scripts or synopses accepted. No visiting artists.

        Ensemble Vocal Ganymède was founded in 1991 by director Yves
        Sabourin for the Montreal community. The ensemble has its roots
        in Montreal’s gay community, and has taken on the task of performing
        music specifically written for an all-male chorus as well as
        promoting tolerance and respect for different life-styles.
        For almost 25 years, the Ensemble has brought together singers ready to
        meet the challenges of friendship with personal and musical success.
        Ganymede recruits singers regardless of sexual orientation. The music is
        the first love, the one that soothes the soul and promotes respect for
        our differences.
