Since 1975, Roadside Theater has made community-based plays in pursuit of the truth that the world is immeasurably enriched when people and cultures tell their own stories and listen to the unique stories of others.
Roadside Theater situates itself within the tradition of U.S. democratic arts and humanities movements which preserve and perpetuate the culture – the intellectual, spiritual, emotional, and material traditions – of exploited communities.
