Purple Circuit Theater Directory - 2005
Gay/Lesbian-Supportive Theater Companies

The Purple Circuit Theater Directory lists gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or “queer” theater and performance throughout the world, 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 desirable, rather than sending full scripts.
To be included in this directory, please send the following to purplecir@aol.com:
Company Name, Address, Phone, Fax, E-mail, Web Site, Wheelie Accessed?, Contact Person(s),
Identity (GLBT, Feminist or Kindred Spirit), Brief Description, Accepts Scripts?, Visiting Performers?

Past Directories are located in our Archive.
