An award-winning, internationally acclaimed company, theater simple was founded in 1990 by two actors who aimed to strip the theatrical experience down to its elemental parts: the imagination of the actor and audience, the playwright's words and the director's vision. theater simple premieres its latest literary exploration, OWL & PUSSYCAT, made for all ages. This ricochet off the famous Edward Lear poem debuted at the REINVIGORATED SEATTLE FRINGE FESTIVAL earlier this fall. Utilizing Shakespearean couplets, songs, four actors, and a pea green boat, Owl & Pussycat's escapades illuminate a love of adventure and some adventures of love. Fur, feathers and puns will fly. (Pigs will not.)

Artist Bio

Performing and touring internationally since 1991, theater simple has participated in international arts festivals from East (Spoleto Festival USA, Piccolo Theatre series, Charleston, South Carolina) to West (Perth International Arts Festival Fringe, Western Australia), to Far East (Flipside, Singapore Arts Festival).

They are even known to perform here at home in Seattle.  In over 17 years of touring and producing, theater simpletons have built six theaters in Seattle and Australia, and produced over 30 plays in four countries on three continents. They have accumulated many awards and accolades from media and arts councils (more than one can comfortably shake a stick at…)

In Australia, the highly competitive GRAND PRIZE for ARTISTIC EXCELLENCE at the Adelaide Fringe Festival was awarded the company in 1996 - overall honors out of 350 groups by the Advertiser and the Independent Arts Council of South Australia.  (Not bad for the Australian debut of a tiny theater from Seattle.) Subsequently, in 1998 THE MASTER & MARGARITA was named one of three BEST PLAYS at the Adelaide Fringe, and The FOREIGN LEGION, curated by the artistic directors of the company, swept all THREE Best Play awards. With those humble Aussie beginnings, theater simple has brought 18 works across the big pond and have taught and toured schools at every Adelaide Fringe Festival since 1996.

Both at home and abroad theater simple has taken to Site-Specific performance with productions taking place throughout parks, in and around Airstream Trailers and podcast from atop a mobile park bench. Look for more Theatrical Adventures in the future.
