hottest band in a twisted steamCRUNK musical at the Modern Theater. The fifth play of the season brings another collaboration with The Huntington Theatre Company as we, together, celebrate the work of a playwright new to Boston. And keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming announcement of our exciting summer show!

Shiv, named for the Destroyer God, sails the cosmic ocean on a makeshift raft piled high with the psychic residue of post-colonialism. Drawn by distant radio signals, she navigates the poetry of her past and the possibilities of love in a soaring, fantastical journey about the destruction that leads to rebirth.

Julian Crouch and Phelim McDermott

Fall into the world of Victorian SteamCRUNK nightmares as a manic music-box spins stories of naughty children and misguided parents. Silly and sinister, SHOCKHEADED PETER, with the musical mayhem of Walter Sickert & The Army of Broken Toys, dares us to ask what’s beneath the floorboards. Don’t miss the most damning tale ever told on stage!

With no parents, little food, and nothing in the bank account, 12-year-old Edith, her brother Kenny, and a giant stuffed frog are doing just fine, thank you very much. Making the rules up as they go, Kenny gets more than mix-tapes from his new friend, Benji, and Edith ends up shooting something for real.  Funny and full of heart, this coming of age story explores the gap between childhood and whatever comes next.

THE WORD on C1

“To attend one of their performances is often to feel yourself immersed in exuberance, with waves of energy pouring from the stage, usually reciprocated by an avidly enthusiastic audience that is far younger and more diverse than the Boston theater norm.”
-The Boston Globe


"The subject matter and the casting is a continuation of the laudable mission of Company One in terms of opening the theater to diversity. Everybody talks the talk, but Company One walks the walk."
-WBUR's The Artery


“Company One has drawn that audience, in part, by choosing plays that carry messages of social change and that contain the potential to be theatrically dynamic — then delivering on those messages and that potential.”
-The Boston Globe
