Plays of Wilton

  Theater is essential. Art is essential. Storytelling is essential. Plays Of Wilton Inc. at The Foundry, a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation under the direction of Ronnie Larsen, is an LGBT arts production organization focused on theater and storytelling in multiple mediums.Our goal at POW! is to create work that is relevant and timely. Because the world is constantly changing, we want to be able to address those changes in the moment and change direction to reflect what is happening in the world.Serving a diverse and marginalized community is our main focus. Openly LGBT people don’t exist in in the theater until around the mid-20th century. Writing a play or making a movie where an LGBT character is front and center is still a revolutionary act. Every time an LGBT playwright writes a play, they are pushing us into the future.The work we do is important. It is unique. It is timely. It is relevant. It is complicated. It is underfunded. It is expensive and it needs to be supported.
