Paradigm Theatre Company
Lead by Founding Artistic Director, Sarah Pitard, Production Director Cat Robey, and Media Director Lee Lytle, Paradigm Theatre Company was created in January of 2012, to provide a home for actors, directors, and writers looking to produce their own work.
They look to produce work without boundaries, work which uses language, silence, and subtext in order to create intense dramatic action. Striving to link the past with the present, as well as reflect the state of our current world, they create productions that bring enlightenment and entertainment to the public in an artistically uninhibited way.
The company recently produced their first rep season of three new writing pieces (one of which was an adaptation) and one classical play. Their latest ventures were The Mother Monologues (a one day only Mother’s Day event) and A Bad Case of the Mondays (a sell out success at Park Theatre in January). Before that, Fresh Off the Boat! was Paradigm’s first show to be publicised with the BBC.
Following that, Paradigm produced their first season (The Many Faces of Love), which included four plays, The Inappropriateness of Love, Freedom, Books, Flowers, and the Moon, A Woman of No Importance…or Somewhat Little Importance Anyhow, and Tartuffe.
