Devanaughn Theatre

"Devanaughn's mission is to bring passionate and transforming works, both classic and contemporary, to the Boston stage and screen. We focus on the exploration of deep, and often dark, themes, such as desire, despair, betrayal and courage. In doing so we provide the Boston community with a realistic and recklessly impassioned exposure to the works of such theatre genius as Shakespeare, Chekhov, Synge, Yeats, Wilson, Mamet, Friel, Shepard, and Pinter, as well as providing a platform for lesser known playwrights of extraordinary talent." Our goal is to provide our audience with a theatre that moves and challenges them toward self-discovery and a greater awareness of our world. Our art is not one that offers the answers to life, but perhaps asks the right questions, providing a dialogue toward healing and understanding.
