Cohesion's Playwrights Fellowships are Here!!!

We received dozens of applications this season, and chose Aladrian Wetzel and R. Eric Thomas for our Playwright Fellowship program. Our Fellowship Coordinator, Abigail Cady, has worked with them and their directors, Katie Hileman and Ben Kleymeyer all season long on the development of their brand new full length plays, and now, they have reached the public reading stage! We are so very excited to present these plays to you at this point in their development process, and hope that you'll come out to see what wonderful work these playwrights have done all season long.

Season 4: E Pluribus Unum!

In season Four, Cohesion is doubling down on our mission and reflecting on our increasingly fragmented world by selecting pieces that deal broadly with the theme of E pluribus unum. Our goal as creators is to showcase the unity that underlies much of what we consider separate, therefore we selected a broad range of plays that ask us as a community to examine the poetics, politics, and possibilities embedded in the phrase: Out of many, one.
 
One of our goals has always been to stretch ourselves beyond what we have done before and Season Four is no exception. We are grateful and joyful for the vibrant and diverse community that allows us to keep reaching past our present successes to create work that investigates the path to a more cohesive and inclusive future for all.
 
Our Season Four lineup is bigger than ever  with five main stage productions -- two in repertory with each other -- and a continuation of our successful Playwright’s Fellowship program, as well as an expansion of our educational work. Cohesion will once again continue expanding our collaborative mission by working in partnership with local theatre companies and our neighborhood communities to engage, encourage, and excite our audiences.

Our Mission

Cohesion Theatre Company seeks to showcase the unity that underlies much of what we consider separate. Society creates distinctions: between classical and new plays, between artistic disciplines, between companies, and between people of different race, class, and gender. CTC will examine these distinctions through the lens of live theatre with the goal of reaching a deeper understanding of what makes us individuals and what makes us all human. Cohesion actively seeks out other theatrical professionals, both individuals and organizations, and encourages cross promotion, co-production, and collaboration in every facet of the work we do.
