Iron Age Theatre has produced theatre focused on the common man and justice for almost 30 year and Theatre in the X has been making theatre available to the common man in underserved communities for the past five years. Iron Age’s diverse approach to theatrical work has offered opportunities for progressive stories to be shared with audiences to shake their preconceptions. Theatre in the X brings African-American theatre with new and veteran Philadelphia talent to West Philly in Parks for free. Both groups share a common vision of working with under appreciated actors, playwrights an communities.
