WHY BEDLAM?

Committed to the immediacy of the relationship between the actor and the audience…

Bedlam creates works of theatre that reinvigorate traditional forms in a flexible, raw space, collapsing aesthetic distance and bringing its viewers into direct contact with the dangers and delicacies of life.

In this new, fresh, active environment storytelling becomes paramount and the result is a kinetic experience of shared empathy.

Your contribution helps to fund current and future productions, as well as further our FREE Veterans Outreach programming. Bedlam is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. All donations are tax deductible.

For more information contact: Susannah Millonzi at development@bedlam.org
