Theatre of the Oppressed NYC

Theatre of the Oppressed NYC – Theatre of the Oppressed NYC.

Through partnerships with social service organizations and city agencies, Theatre of the Oppressed NYC (TONYC) creates theatre troupes with community members who face pressing social, economic, health, and human rights issues. 

The troupes create and perform plays based on real-life struggles, which engage diverse audiences in theatrical brainstorming – or Forum Theatre – to activate communities and 
creatively challenge systems of oppression.

Our annual Legislative Theatre Festival 
brings our forum theatre troupes into the room with legislators and advocacy groups to brainstorm policy-level strategies to pressing community issues.
