Pig Iron Theatre Company

Founded in 1995, Pig Iron has rapidly become known as a unique, innovative voice in American theatre and an audience favorite at the Live Arts Festival in their hometown of Philadelphia. Founded in 1995, the ensemble’s physical precision, lyrical writing, and exuberant productions have earned them 36 Barrymore Award Nominations in the past 8 years; five grants from the National Endowment for the Arts; a Total Theatre Award at the Edinburgh Fringe; and an OBIE Award, Off-Broadway’s highest honor.  Pig Iron’s work has toured to theaters and festivals in London, Edinburgh, San Francisco, Boston, Atlanta, Ireland, Poland, Ukraine, Brazil, Romania, Germany and Italy.  In the fall of 2007, Pig Iron will be the only Philadelphia company to participate in Suzan-Lori Parks’s 365 PROJECT at the Joseph Papp Public Theater.
