Presenting Kick-Ass Classics and New World Premieres from the Era of Verse and Violence

Brave Spirits Theatre stages visceral and intimate productions of Shakespeare and his contemporaries with a focus on female artists and feminist perspectives. BST productions, which contrast the elegance of poetry with the basest elements of humanity, work to tear down the perception of these plays as proper and intellectual and instead use them to explore the boundaries of acceptable human behavior.

Washington is blessed to have young, creative, multi-talented emerging companies like Brave Spirits here.
