The Amoralists is a theatre company that produces work of no moral judgment. Dedicated to an honest expression of the American condition, our actor driven ensemble explores complex characters of moral ambiguity. Leaving no stone unturned, we plunge the depths of the social, political, spiritual and sexual characteristics of human nature. With hundreds of young companies in the theater community, The Amoralists are doing work that is widely recognized for accomplishing the aforementioned points while simultaneously making it completely accessible to all audiences - whether veteran or inexperienced theatergoers - therefore putting theater at the heart of our community and expanding the possibilities and reaches of the arts. By combining our work's accessibility with its moral ambiguity, we believe that it truly initiates a startling dialogue between artist and audience. Rollicking, rebellious, and raw, our work will go home with you...Boom!
