Real Live Theatre is a cooperatively produced theatre company based in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts. As a collective of theatre artists, we seek to create unique, dynamic, and powerful pieces of storytelling. We are committed to working as an ensemble, to training in our craft, to discovering new ways to tell old stories and to generating new stories, and we are committed to excellence in our art. We support ourselves and each other to reach our highest potential as storytellers and performance artists. We seek to engage with our communities - local, regional, national, international, and global. We believe that which stories we tell and how we tell them matters. Real Live Theatre is exactly what we do and who we are and we bring the fullness of our love and courage to this art.

"I REGARD THE THEATRE as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being."

 -Oscar Wilde
