Our Mission

Our mission is to promote and encourage the original written work of new and emerging voices through the presentation of original drama, poetry and prose in reading format, while reaching out to diverse neighborhoods throughout New York City for inspiration, authors, actors and audiences.

Crossing Borders

Our name also suggests the type of work we want to produce. Topics that either directly or indirectly involve crossing various types of borders between people: countries, religions, generations, life-stages and economic, gender or racial differences—and the walls that must come down to allow crossing—stereotypes, prejudices, hatred and blindly held customs.

In a literal sense we also want to cross borders by producing each program in multiple venues and boroughs and to audiences as diverse as our thematic programming.
