Who We Are
Founded in 2017 by Kari Buckley, Steven Russo, Tyler Christie and Andrea Louise Soule, Slingshot Theater Co. is a collective of theater artists that develop and produce bold, brand new plays by budding playwrights. At the center of Slingshot lies a workshop process with the playwright. Aimed at cultivating a laboratory where brazen, unexpected, and fearless theater can take place, we are dedicated to engaging our audiences with fresh and simply entertaining contemporary stories.
The Playwright’s Loft, Slingshot’s signature 10-minute play festival, was also created in 2017. Borne out of a desire to showcase original works by diverse, young, and burgeoning playwrights, the festival aims to present several shows throughout the year highlighting these ideals.
Our inaugural production went up from May 3-27, 2018 at The PIT Striker in New York City!
