Firehouse Theatre is pleased to announce our 2020-2021 SEASON OF DISCOVERY, when we'll all be learning to adapt to extreme and turbulent circumstances, and artists will explore new ways of making and sharing performance.


Our 27th season includes eight world premiere plays and a diverse range of other projects in our three series -- FIREHOUSE PLAYS, FIREHOUSE FRINGE, and FIREHOUSE STUDIO.


At this challenging time, when the future is so uncertain, dates for all productions are fluid. We'll communicate specific schedules as soon as we can. Whenever possible, productions will be available as both LIVE / socially distant controlled performances at Firehouse and via remote streaming.
