About Aurora Theatre Company
The founders of Aurora Theatre Company came together around the development and production of a new play: Dorothy Bryant's Dear Master. Following the success of that production, their desire was to continue to produce plays "about something important; ideas mediated by language and people, which are assisted by other elements like sets, lights and costumes," not dominated by them. A defining characteristic of Aurora Theatre Company is its intimate performance space and its emphasis on subtlety, shadings of feeling and ensemble responsiveness. Aurora Theatre Company is often referred to as “chamber theatre.” In 20 years of operation, it has won 20 awards from the Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle in the areas of acting, directing, ensemble and costume work. Aurora Theatre Company received the coveted $25,000 Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation award in 2000 for new play production and the San Francisco Weekly named Aurora Theatre Company Outstanding Bay Area Theatre Company.
